Facebook. It’s a typical social networking website that many teens log hours onto. It’s simple, it’s fast, and to the point. Facebook isn’t just for teenagers and their friends to have and use all the time, it can be a useful parenting tool for practically any adult to have!

1. STATUS UPDATES: Most teenagers update their Facebook status’ depending on what they are doing and where they are going. It can be useful, because you don’t have to constantly ask where they are going and who they are going with. Facebook now has a feature where you can tag people on your status. You can easily click on the tagged person’s name and you can see exactly who your teenager is with.

2. PHOTOS: People say pictures are worth a thousand words, oh boy are they right. A person’s Facebook profile picture says a lot about who they are inside. The clothes, the make-up, the surroundings, the other people in the picture; every single thing in the profile picture say something about your teenager. If it’s a little risqué, simply ask them to change it.

3. PROFILE: One’s Facebook Profile has it all. It can make or break your teenager. The profile is where the profile picture is, the status updates are, where the friends list is, and last but not least where the wall postings are at. On your teenager’s profile you can find out practically anything about your teen. From there you can access any of their friends profiles, and that alone can give you a lot of information about anyone.

    That IS of course if your teen “friends” you! None of the teens around here friend their parents.

    I dont know how the ‘sweet deal’ comment was relevant to the article, but cool. Well AlizaG, I’m a 15 year old and i am ‘friended’ with my parents. And a number of my friends are friends with their parents as well. In Kansas it sure happens (:
