Parental Discretion Advised

Guilty of stalking your child’s Facebook page in your spare time? Or poking fun at your mom for that time she asked you what a Facebook wall was? Social networking is bringing an entirely new dimension to family interactions. At Lab42, we were especially curious how parent and child relationships played out on Facebook. We wanted to know exactly how parents communicated with their children on Facebook, and if they had concerns about their children’s use of the site. To get the details, we surveyed parents with Facebook accounts. Check out the results below.
