Social networks are not only almost omnipresent spaces in the digital society, they also represent an opportunity to educate in citizenship, security and human rights. This paper seeks to reflect on how education in new technologies needs to go beyond the strictly functional but go towards a deeper understanding of its risks, yes, but also of how virtual presences are spaces for the expression of values, duties and rights. To this end, the concept of Digital Citizenship will be explained and innovative educational proposals will be explored on the subject and, through these experiences, it will be evident how the greater involvement of parents and teachers allows students to foster a critical attitude towards the contents of these new media, ethical behavior in Internet spaces and responsible use that does not violate their security and respects their own privacy and that of others. We will study the resources of Common Sense Education, an online guide to educate in Digital Citizenship at all school levels, created with the support of Hardvard's Project Zero, and its related page, Common Sense Media, which reviews audiovisual products (movies and television series), books, apps, websites and video games with guidelines for parents on age recommendation, content criteria and even recommendations for conversation topics after consumption.
