  30. 30. Social Network Sites (SNS) present young people with a wide range of opportunities and risks. Opportunities and risks go hand in hand. The opportunities and risks of most concern to young people (keeping in touch with friends and bullying respectively) are different from those most frequently highlighted in the mainstream media.
  31. 31. Young people need support to develop the appropriate resources and resilience to navigate risk and to make the most of opportunities on SNS, and peer groups need opportunities to negotiate and develop positive norms for their interaction on SNS.
  32. 32. Many of the reasons young people may encounter risks through SNS have roots outside of the technology, in issues of young people's personal and social development. The appropriate response to SNS risk may not involve technology.
  33. 33. Social networking sites can be made safer when youth workers, as professional and trusted adults, actively engage with them.
  34. 34. Youth work can engage with SNS as one or more of:  an environment in which young people need support and guidance;  a marketing tool for promoting youth work opportunities and activities;  a communications tool for interacting with young people and groups of young people;  a youth work tool for promoting young peoples creative expression, political engagement and wider personal and social development;  a starting point to work from in helping young people develop their skills, interests and capacities across a range of issues and areas;  a platform for new forms of online youth work;
  35. 35. Youth work methods have a particular contribution to make in encouraging and supporting young people to adopt safe and positive online behaviours.
  36. 36. Online social networks have a unique and exciting contribution to make to detached youth work.
