Teaching Facebook Safety

I often say that there`s an opportunity for libraries in teaching social literacy skills for the world of Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, etc. I think this posting might be useful in starting to frame some training:
FACEBOOK FAIL: How to Use Facebook Privacy Settings and Avoid Disaster
I know that some libraries use the “Pimp Your MySpace“ approach for teens and “├înternet Safety“ for Parents. Of course, your marketing style needs to adjust to your target audience.
In any event, it`s an interesting opportunity for libraries of all types. It ties so nicely into the role libraries play in providing safe access to the Internet.
Now, if you can tie Library eBay Basics training to your collection (hobies, stamps, antiques, etc.) . . . that`d be cool
