Are you using Facebook and Twitter, or and online support/chat room?
You will need to secure your facebook page, certainly before your son or daughter goes on operations. So please if you don't know how to ask them to do it for you if you don't know how, well before they go on operations - for yours and their security. If you have missed this opportunity, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and they will send you a step by step guide.
