About the book

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Skype – for many children and young people, life without these and other social networking platforms is almost unthinkable!

This booklet for adopted and long-term fostered young people raises important questions about the use of social networking sites, chatrooms and instant messaging, and offers practical advice on sharing information (or not) and staying safe online. It has been fully revised and updated to reflect changes to applications and privacy settings.

Social networking and you specifically addresses concerns about unexpected contact with birth family members, talking things through with adoptive parents and tracing birth relatives. The real-life experiences of adopted young people bring the guide to life and challenge the reader to consider ‘what happened next?’.
