RESPONSIBLE SOCIAL MEDIA

The internet is an amazing place.  In a very short time, it has allowed access to information and resources unprecedented in history.   It has become integral to our hstw2everyday lives, both personal and professional.   The repercussions of internet access affects each of us every single day.

Unfortunately, the internet has a darker side as well.   People that post on the internet may not be who they say they are, information found is often not correct or is a blatant lie.   The internet is mired with both great information, and tremendous misinformation.

With all the possibilities that the internet allows, Social Media has become increasingly prominent, and the vast majority of people are becoming more and more reliant and interconnected through these interactions.   From a very young age, our children are also not only on the internet, but making new connections and seeing new technology to connect them almost daily.   Used responsibly, there are many wonderful things that social media can provide, such as staying connected with friends and family, and meeting new people with similar interests, goals & dreams.   Using social media can make people feel connected to a larger world and community.  Nevertheless, this brings up many new matters that parents have to understand and monitor closely, as such casual and easy ways to connect with others has proven to have a darker and irresponsible side can also be a scary place for children to be; often with no real redeeming value – especially at a young and impressionable age.
