I monitor my son's Facebook. To be honest I don't do it often. His friends are kids from his arts magnet school and a couple of teachers. The posts are often creative and rarely worth worrying about . The fact that his friends are hearing and he is deaf doesn't matter online. He can express himself directly. I often feel his meaning in direct conversation is changed because of the communication barrier with his peers. If not changed maybe watered down. I could be wrong. With the power of written English he is free. He can join the casual chatting of typical hearing kids. Here is an example of his freedom with the written word,
A girl posts- "Sometimes I wonder what's real and what's fake... I hope I find out sooner than later."
This is followed by really cool and sweet comments.
Then my Deaf son posts- " What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain."
Yep, I am not really worried about Facebook. This is a place where my son can by heard loud and clear.
