Facebook is changing our lives and our world. Parents must deal with this reality to protect their children and guide them to success.
This book gives you answers to the top 25 questions parents ask about Facebook. Building on their „Facebook for Parents” class at Stanford University, the sister-brother team of Linda Phillips and BJ Fogg will guide you. Their chapters are short, easy to read, and relevant to lives of parents today.
Linda Fogg Phillips is the mother of eight children from age 11 to 26. She brings a wealth of experience to Facebook for Parents. From her vantage point, she has seen the good and bad that Facebook introduces into the life of a family. Her insights give parents answers.
Dr. BJ Fogg is a research psychologist who directs Stanford’s Persuasive Technology Lab. In his first Facebook course, his students created apps that motivated over 16 million user installations. Today, he’s the leading expert on how Facebook changes people’s behaviors.
