The biggest thing is one you delete it you cannot try to log back in for a extended period of time or it will stop the whole process. So if you're serious Change to password to something you son wont ever know so he cant log in.Full disclosure....I have never had an account, and only looked at it a handfull of times. But last week we had an "episode" where my Son logged into his account on another kids phone, then later that kid did some messaging as my Son and it got ugly/gross pretty quick. After alot of turmoil for everyone involved I'm having him delete his account completely. He's 16, he's pissed about it, He is convinced he cannot possibly be a teenager without it because he won't know what's going on in the groups. Because I don't know what I'm missing (sarcastically) I don't really care. Now I'm learning how to fully delete an account (remember I don't know how to navigate it at all) So any pointers would be helpful.
As crazy as this sounds I’ve had more than one instance that convinced that this is happening. We have to put our dog down in the next week so me and my wife were talking about what we were gonna do next thing she is on Pinterest and dog headstones are popping up on her feed.Even if the apps on your phone actively listen to you throughout the day? Conspiracy?
It’s more clever than that. They know your contacts, so if you block audio/video on the app but have a conversation with coworkers or friends, their app picks it up and you all get those targeted ads.As crazy as this sounds I’ve had more than one instance that convinced that this is happening.

Oh if it were only that easy..... with four boys and a daughter I'm sure I've only hit the tip of the iceberg. I'm all for teaching correct principals and letting them govern themselves when it's affordable. They get many, many chances to do that. Some battles are worth fighting and some are worth letting them learn from their mistakes. Each parent has to decide which ones those are.+3 on not deleting kids account. He will make an account anyway and just hide it from you. Teach him the treacheries of the internet, such as this example, and allow him to learn from it.
I wish that teenage kids were able to only post and message, and what ever else it can be called, what they were willing to be accountable for....I don't post anything that I'm not willing to be accountable for, so I don't have anything to hide. Facebook/google/skynet can have all of my info.
I also agree that a kid without Facebook would be separated from his social circle. I think those of us that are older an less dependent on social media for our news and content, don't realize what a big part it is to the younger generation. I don't post much on FB, but I do use it to organize group events and I have friends that aren't on FB that always complain that they don't get invited to things. Well, its not my fault they choose to be disconnected, and I don't have time to individually invite everybody I know personally.
It's fine. It's not like I'm spending my life digging out deep state conspiracy theories or talking about offing all politicians and baseball players. If I was talking about going somewhere/buying something and my phone starts showing me that stuff, then high five to my phone!Even if the apps on your phone actively listen to you throughout the day?
