Facebook is running an online safety for parents workshop in Wollongong on Thursday night.
A team from Facebook and local cyber-safety stakeholders will be involved in the discussion at the Sage Hotel.
They will talk about how to support young people to have a safe and positive experience online.
And share some of the tools, resources and policies from Facebook and Instagram that can help support parents to navigate social media with their children.
Registrations are required for Thursday night’s workshop which is part of Facebook’s Community Boost program bringing digital education and support to regional communities.
