You would not go to a doctor who did not stay current on his continuing education so why would you trust your small business with someone who does not invest in his or her education. You would not take your car to a mechanic that is not ASE certified. You would not take your child to a dentist that is not licensed.

So what happens on Oh Crap. My Parents Joined Facebook? If a parent or any relative or adult that has friended a teen writes anything that the teen considers embarassing in their status, the teen emails it to the site and it will appear for all to read. Teens do have the option to black out the last names to keep their parents anonymous if they desire. Little captions are added to the bottom of each picture or conversation for additional humor.
Once you have a few posts under your belt, you may notice that some messages have one or more words with the pound (#) sign before them. These words, or sets of letters, are called hashtags. Some examples of hashtags are #followfriday, #news, and #harrypotter. Hashtags make it easier for a post to be found using certain words in Twitter’s search function.
