The Connected World
Social networking sites are all online, so any information you add about yourself can be seen by anyone in the world.
Social Media or Social Networking
If you put too much information about yourself online, people you don’t know may be able to find you.
Stay safe on social media
As more and more young people use popular social networking platforms to share their lives online with family and friends, it’s increasingly important for them to understand how to stay safe within those worlds.
Do children use Social Media?
Social networking is hugely popular. Many young people are sophisticated in the way they use social media apps and websites, tailoring their communication for different audiences, and accessing them from a range of devices including smartphones, tablets, and games consoles. Be aware of what information you publish. Once published it is very hard to retain that information.
Social Media Risks
Like all forms of public communication, comes with some risks. Not all of these risks turn into actual problems; and if children never face any risks, they never learn how to deal with them. By helping your child understand what the risks are, you can play a big part in preventing them from turning into problems.
