  10. 10. How do we find a youth work perspective on social networking?
  11. 11. 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.
  12. 12. 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;
