Questions regarding acting classes are usually best asked and answered in a thread that focuses on acting classes.

NDAs or CAs are becoming more common. Read on...

Please be aware that it is NOT a good idea to discuss specifics about any projects, auditions, callbacks, etc., on social networks, unless the production company has given you permission or instructed you to do so. It's best to always ask first for permission to speak freely about any projects, online or elsewhere! Specifics include the name of the project or product, time and location of the audition or project, and people's actual names who are involved.

More and more projects are now attaching a NDA/Non-Disclosure Agreement or CA/Confidentiality Agreement to their projects to be signed, due to the amount of information that is being discussed more openly on places like facebook, twitter and message boards like this one, before production is ready to release the information. Even if a NDA or CA is not signed, it is best not to say anything until the project information is officially released.

There are so many factors involved, i.e., spoilers, confidential marketing campaigns with time sensitive release dates, copyrights, confidential locations, privacy and security of actors, competing projects or companies, change in casting and search engines that can spread the written word like wildfire. The list goes on.

So, if you feel you have to say something and it is not listed for public viewing on an open casting site, printed in the trade papers, or already listed on IMDb, and you do not have permission from the production company, it’s best just to say, “Great news! I just booked or got a callback for a commercial (no product name) or major network drama or film (no title), but can’t say anymore, just yet. I'll keep you posted!” Then, when the project airs or is open for public discussion by permission of the production company, you can give more details.

Thank you Mominbiz for your always excellent advice. It's SO helpful to us newbies!

I've seen so much here and on PARF of parents asking about specific projects, if anyone has had CBs. So, you're saying this too shouldn't be happening?

You're welcome, Starmom! We were all newbies at some point.

A far as discussing auditions and callbacks online and on social networks, it should be fine if everyone uses good judgement and keeps the specifics to a minimum. I know it's fun and natural to want to share experiences and gather info from others in the same situation and it's helpful to communicate with others who can relate and be supportive. I was just putting this out there, since it was brought to my attention by some respected industry professionals that there is an increase in NDAs and CAs, due to occasional leaks of info about project details or storylines being disclosed before intended. The audition process shouldn't be a problem to discuss if it has not been specified not to.

If the production company and/or its clients really want their project kept confidential, it's up to them and the actor's agent (if they have one) to make that clear. That is probably when they would have the actors and crew sign a NDA or CA.
