Teenagers can prevent themselves from being manipulated by the social media by simply listening to their parents advices regarding the proper use of the social media.
This is not to say that all teens are in danger online, but understanding ways to help your teen protect themselves is the key to preventing further victimization.

1. Set clear, consistent rules with your teen around the use of technology. It's also important to talk with your teen about the consequences of sexting.

2. Get familiar with technology. If your teen is using it, so should you. Make sure you understand concepts like email, texting, IMing, gaming, social networking, cell phone and web cameras.

3. Ask your teen about Facebook and MySpace. While Facebook has tried to make it easier to set your teen's privacy settings, many people still have personal date exposed and don't even know it.

4. Set clear boundaries about what your teen may and may not do with their cell phones. This includes monitoring the amount of time your child spends on social networking sites and when they use the sites.
