While social networking sites can increase a person's circle of friends, they also can increase exposure to people with less than friendly intentions. Each site has a privacy policy, and most have a way of configuring the sign-up process to regulate who gets which level of access to the site and who can have access to your information. Some social networks, like Google's Blogger.com, are totally public, which means anyone can read anything at any time. AOL's Red Blog is the most private, partly because it's only for AOL members and also because it's designed specifically for teens. Sites like MySpace.com offer levels of privacy — "friends only" or "me only" (for those who want to create a diary). But none of that will matter. Your kids will go where their friends are. For the most part that means either MySpace.com or Facebook.com, which started out as a site for college kids but is now reaching down to high schoolers. YouTube.com, with its ability to post videos, is also becoming really popular.

Great slideshow!
