What about social networking?

Your son/daughter will most likely be using the internet to communicate with friends and friends of friends with various tools such as instant messenger services or facebook. I remember in my time it was the telephone - there will always be a demand to talk with friends. It is up to you as a parent at home to monitor this - best practice is to have the laptop in a common room so that you can see what is going on. At Northpine Facebook and other social media sites are blocked for all students except seniors as it can be a distraction in class when they need to be focused on other things. Remember that all this is monitored via our Netbox Blue internet connection.
