  • 2. Photo  Source:  webtreats  (Flickr)   Social  Media  websites  are  among   the  most  common  ac>vi>es  of   todays  teens  and  adolescents   Any  website  that  allows  social   interac>on  is  considered  a  social   media  site,  including  social   networking  sites,  gaming  sites  and   virtual  worlds,  video  sites,  and   blogs1  
  • 3. Photo  Source:  mkhmarke>ng  (Flickr)     Social  Media  sites  offer  today’s  kids  a  growing  portal  of  communica>on   and  entertainment  that  has  and  will  con>nue  to  grow  exponen>ally  
  • 4. Photo  Source:  elhombredenegro  (Flickr)   Not  all  of  these  sites  are  safe  for   teens  and  adolescents  so  it  is   important  that  parents  are  aware   of  what  their  children  are  doing   while  on  the  internet  
  • 5. Photo  Source:  mkhmarke>ng  (Flickr)   Engaging  in  social  media  is  a  rou>ne  ac>vity  that   research  has  shown  to  benefit  children  by   enhancing  communica>on,  social  connec>on,   and  even  technical  skills.1  
  • 6. Social  media  sites  like   Facebook  offer  daily   opportuni>es  to  to   connect  with  friends,   classmates,  and   people  with  similar   interests     Recently,  the  number  of  children  and   teens  using  sites  like  Facebook  has   increased  drama>cally.  According  to  a   recent  poll,  22%  of  teenagers  log  on  to   their  favorite  social  media  site  more  than   10  >mes  a  day,  and  more  than  half  of   adolescents  log  on  to  a  social  media  site   more  than  once  a  day.1   Photo  Source:  Maria  Elena  (Flickr)  
  • 7. Photo  Source:  Angelo  DeSan>s  (Flickr)   75%  of  kids  now  own  cell   phones,  and  25%  use   them  for  social  media,   54%  use  them  for  tex>ng,   and  24%  use  them  for   instant  messaging.1  
  • 8. Photo  Source:  Esther  Dyson  (Flickr)   Most  of  todays  genera>on’s   development  takes  place  on  the   internet  and  cell  phones  through   social  media  and  other  online   sources    
  • 9. Photo  Source:  Jean-­‐Pierre  ARIBAU  (Flickr)     Because  of  these  developments  online,  recent  research  indicates  that  there  are   frequent  online  expressions  of  offline  behaviors,  such  as  bullying,  clique-­‐forming,   and  sexual  experimenta>on.1  
  • 10. Photo  Source:  Giuseppe  Milo  (Flickr)   Many  parents  today  feel  a  divide  between  them  and  their  children  due  to  their  children’s   technological  knowledge.  Although  some  parents  feel  comfortable  and  believe  in  the   benefits  of  technology  and  social  media  others  fear  the  dangers  of  it.  
  • 11. Photo  Source:  Alan  Reeves  (Flickr)   Social  media   sites  give  kids   opportuni>es   to  accomplish   important   tasks  online   that  they  may   not  have  been   able  to   accomplish   otherwise  
  • 12. Photo  Source:  Ma[hew  Burpee  (Flickr)   Social  media  can  give  kids  opportuni>es  for  community  engagement   through  raising  money  for  charity  and  volunteering  for  local  events.1  
  • 13. Photo  Source:  Dennis  Skley  (Flickr)   Today’s  youth  can  enhance  their  individual  and  collec>ve  crea>vity  through   development  and  sharing  of  ar>s>c  and  musical  endeavors  using  the  vast   opportuni>es  provided  by  social  media  and  sharing  sites.  
  • 14. Photo  Source:  Cris>na  (Flickr)   Blogs  and  other  forms  of  individual  expression  help  kids  to  express   themselves  more  freely  and  openly  to  a  wider  community  of  peers  who   share  similar  interests  and  could  be  experiencing  similar  difficul>es  or   successes    
  • 15. Photo  Source:  mkhmarke>ng  (Flickr)   Middle  and  High  school  students  are  using  social  media  to  connect  with  one  another   on  homework  and  group  projects.  For  example,  Facebook  and  similar  social  media   programs  allow  students  to  gather  outside  of  class  to  collaborate  and  exchange  ideas   about  assignments.   Some  schools  successfully  use  blogs  as  teaching  tools,  which  has  the  benefit   of  reinforcing  skills  in  English,  wri[en  expression,  and  crea>vity.1  
  • 16. Photo  Source:  jfcherry  (Flickr)   Adolescents  are   now  finding  it  easier   than  ever  to  access   online  informa>on   about  health  easily   and  anonymously.   Health  concerns   that  kids  might  have   been  too   embarrassed  or  not   well  enough   informed  to  ask   about  are  not  easy   to  look  up  and  seek   the  proper   treatment   However,  not  all  of  the  informa>on  found  online  is   accurate  so  it  is  s>ll  important  for  parents  to  be  very   involved  in  their  children’s  health  issues  to  make  sure   that  they  receive  the  proper  treatment.1    
  • 17. Photo  Source:  Cory  Doctorow  (Flickr)   Despite  the  many  benefits  of  social  media  for  teens  and   adolescents  there  are  s>ll  many  dangers  for  parents  to  look  out   for  
  • 18. Photo  Source:  kid-­‐josh  (Flickr)   Cyber  bullying  is   deliberately  using   digital  media  to   communicate  false,   embarrassing,  or   hos>le  informa>on   about  another  person.   It  is  the  most  common   online  risk  for  all  teens. 1   Cyber  bullying  is  quite  common,  can  occur  to  any  young  person   online,  and  can  cause  profound  psychosocial  outcomes   including  depression,  anxiety,  sever  isola>on,  and  even  suicide.1  
  • 19. Photo  Source:  Pro  Juventute  (Flickr)   Sex>ng  can  be  defined  as   sending,  receiving,  or   forwarding  sexually  explicit   messages,  photographs,  or   images  via  cell  phone,   computer  or  other  digital   devices.1   A  recent  survey  revealed  that  20%  of   teens  have  sent  or  posted  nude  or   seminude  photographs  or  videos  of   themselves.  Teens  can  be  charged  with   felony  child  pornography  charges   because  of  this  in  addi>on  to  school   suspensions  and  emo>onal  distress.1  
  • 20. Photo  Source:  nate  bolt  (Flickr)   Researchers  have  proposed  a  new  phenomenon  called  ‘Facebook  depression’   defined  as  depression  that  develops  when  preteens  and  teens  spend  a  great  deal  of   >me  on  social  media  sites,  such  as  Facebook,  and  then  begin  to  exhibit  classic   symptoms  of  depression.1  
  • 21. Photo  Source:  transcam  (Flickr)   So,  as  you  can  see  the  internet  and  social  media  has  had  and  will   con>nue  to  have  a  large  impact  on  how  we  live  our  lives.  It  has   many  benefits  for  teens  and  adolescents  growing  up  with  it  but   there  are  also  many  dangers  out  there  that  parents  must  be   prepared  to  protect  their  children  from.
