  12. 12. Before we talk about apps…
  13. 13. Let’s talk about pizza…
  14. 14. Social media is no different.
  15. 15. Facebook example • From Quarter 2 2012 - Q 3 2013 • • • Active Facebook users age 16-19 fell from 62% to 52% Age 20-24 63% to 52% In 2013 • Active teen use for Vine has increased by 639% • Instagram - 85% increase Sources: http://www.forbes.com/sites/haydnshaughnessy/2013/12/30/dead-and-buried-heres-whats-really-happening-with-facebook-demographics/ http://www.forbes.com/sites/parmyolson/2013/11/12/heres-where-teens-are-going-instead-of-facebook/

  19. 19. People like you make it uncool for teens to say they use Facebook.
  20. 20. So…where’d they go?
  21. 21. Android & iOS
  22. 22. Two things to keep in mind…
  23. 23. If your child is using these apps, it doesn’t mean they are using them inappropriately.
  24. 24. Apps will come and go, but behavior will remain the same.
  25. 25. How many do you know?
  26. 26. Snapchat • Send images and videos to friends with a time limit of how long they can see it. • Two main issues revolve around sexting and that there are ways for pictures to be saved. Source: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/11-sites-and-apps-kids-are-heading-to-after-facebook
  27. 27. Kik • Alternative to SMS text messaging - no messaging limits or fees. • Messaging is mostly private. • Prompted to invite everyone in your phone’s contact list. • Other issues arise with apps within Kik. • Example: OinkText allows you to submit your username (or real name) to connect with others on Kik. Source: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/11-sites-and-apps-kids-are-heading-to-after-facebook
  28. 28. Whisper • Users anonymously post their secrets as images with text. • Can view images online but need the app to interact. • People who post are looking for likes and comments. Source: https://www.smore.com/xfnd-trendy-teen-apps
  29. 29. Ask.fm • Probably the most common site that our District has seen issues with. • Post a question and receive answers. • The person who posts can decide whether or not to allow anonymous content. • Anonymous content leads to LOTS of concerns and instances of cyberbullying. Source: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/11-sites-and-apps-kids-are-heading-to-after-facebook
  30. 30. Vine • 6 second looping video clips • Can have private or public account; public by default. • Concern is the ease of finding inappropriate content. Source: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/11-sites-and-apps-kids-are-heading-to-after-facebook
  31. 31. Instagram • Share images or 15 second videos publicly or privately. • Content is public by default. • Inappropriate content is prohibited by their terms of service, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Source: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/11-sites-and-apps-kids-are-heading-to-after-facebook
  32. 32. Twitter • Microblogging site (140 characters or less) • Great for short summaries of what is going on in the world. • Easy to hit send - not always recommended in the heat of the moment. Source: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/11-sites-and-apps-kids-are-heading-to-after-facebook
  33. 33. Why are these apps appealing? Students like the “privacy” - no different then when you decided to pass a note instead of talk to someone.
  34. 34. But remember the pizza!
  35. 35. What can you do? • Talk with your kids. • Do they use these apps? • If so, how do they use these apps? • How are others using the apps?
  36. 36. What can you do? • Know all of their passwords and/or device passcodes. • There are a variety of apps and ways to monitor devices - depends on the type of device.
  37. 37. http://www.commonsensemedia.org/ educators/educate-families
  38. 38. Where is your kid’s device at 9pm?
  39. 39. Relationships matter
  40. 40. Questions or Clarifications?
