Hello Forum Members, Just wondering who all are also on Facebook and find that it supplements social contact with Taekwon-Do friends and associates. Thanks.

Hi Mr Borja,

Cancelled my personal account, here in the UK Facebook is frowned upon by our Child Protection Authorities. There has been a couple of document incidents where comments from juniors made on instructors profiles have lead to investigations / prosecutions.

I foresee that instructors in the governing body may be instructed to remove personal listings, links and friend requests in order to protect themselves from any allegations. I know lots of instructors use the site to advertise there schools, Facebook seems to be getting a lot of negative publicity at the moment. I'm interested to see how this turns out and will post it here if i hear anything

Hello Mr. Skyrme,

Thanks for responding. Yes, I can see how the generous adding of "friends" to one's account, as if numbers really count, can lead to problems.

However, careful use of account settings, such as who can see what, can help keep things under control.

                                             He conquers who conquers himself.
