Social Networking Website Tips: Do not give out your personal information to anyone nor list any private information on your profile. Guard your password - do not give it out to anyone under any circumstances. Do not excessively click on popups or various links that look suspicious. Try not to take all personal comments at face value from friends over the social networking website. Locate and learn where to submit complaints of any user who may be harassing, bullying, or compromising your user account. It may be a good practice to set your personal profile to "private" so other users except those that you designate, can view your profile.
