Put your children's Facebook profile on the strictest settings - even profile pictures. Make sure you have access to your children's passwords and that they are only friends with people they know.
I'm hoping you accompany your kids at all times, never leave them with a male friend or relative, don't let them play footy as their coach could be a perv. This is a much more bigger threat to your kids than some creep online.
I know because my son who is a prep has one in his classroom. It's very basic and they haven't signed it obviously but the teacher constantly refers to it if the boys aren't nice to each other.
This is one of the most expensive schools here so if there were murky grounds the parents would have challenged the decision but they sucked it up.
I'm talking myself into banning my kids from social media until they're 30!!!
- postcode in profile
- mentioning kids names in profile or in a thread
- mentioning they have an interest in a vague-ish group (eg church or charity fund-raising)
- detail about the type of birth they had
- mentioning whether their kid goes to public or private school
The list goes on. Locational information suchc as addresses can easily be obtained in most cases via various online tools (if someone was interested).
As mentioned I've stumbled across the ID's of several BH users based on 'innocent' information provided. I've also witnessed first hand adult males successfully soliciting underage teenage girls online. Not directly connecting the two (BH and pedo's) however IMO there is more that enough worrying behavior out there to warrant not posting personal details willy nilly.

So all the strictest controls in the world can't control where photos end up.
