If your kids comment on a friend’s public status update, that information becomes public, even if your children keep all their Facebook privacy settings limited to visibility among friends only.

Recently, the son of a woman who is a social media professional commented on his mother’s public Facebook post, and the influence measuring website Klout created a profile for him without his permission (I’ve withheld these people’s names to prevent even more exposure).

Technically, Klout can use this public comment to find you, connect you to the poster, and pull in your profile photo.

Also, at this time, there is no way to opt out of a Klout profile...
