Facebook & Social Networking

Facebook is the latest in social networking web sites.  Originally called thefacebook, Facebook was founded by former-Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg (while at Harvard) who ran it as one of his hobby projects.  It has now become a way for kids to keep in touch or adults to find long lost friends.  Don’t be embarrased to join, but just be aware that there are many setings that will limit access to the info you post.  -Don’t post full birthday.  -Set profile to Only Show personal info to “friends”.  Facebook features many games you can play.  Be careful when they ask for your cell phone number to “get your score”  You may be subscribing to a “pay service”  Remember fellow officers,  keep your info brief.  Just enough to make contact with old friends.

Caution:  Sometime a friend will have a video on their “wall”  If it has a url that is in a foreign country and looks wierd,  DON’T PLAY IT !!!.  It may be a virus and wreak havok on your computer or your router, etc
