Birmingham Public Library Presents: Social Networking for Parents: What You Need to Know About What Your Children are Typing
May 12, 2008, Birmingham, AL—BPL’s next Tech Tuesday will be an entire session about social networking sites, which are all the new media kids use to communicate, including text messaging, chats, IM’s, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, and many more.
This session will be held on Tuesday, May 20th and it has been designed to inform parents about the specific acronyms that kids are using and how to discover what your kids are saying. Some of the phrases that parents may have seen are PAL (Parents Are Listening), KPC (Keep Parents Clueless), and POS (Parents Over Shoulder), among a host of others.
Join us as we discover and teach you the internet shorthand used by children of all ages as they text, chat, and connect themselves to the outside world.
