Being safe...

  • Use privacy controls.
  • Be wise about what you share!
  • If anything makes you uncomfortable, log off, block the person, TELL SOMEONE.


Who are you anyway?


  • Represent yourself well!
  • Would you want your grandma to see it?
  • Would you want it reported on the evening news?

Who you are is not defined by how many "likes" you get.

It's Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens
by Danah Boyd

Photo by Tom Raftery

Boyd: "Teens are passionate about finding their place in society. What is different as a result of social media is that teens’ perennial desire for social connection and autonomy is now being expressed in net-worked publics. Networked publics are publics that are restructured by networked technologies."

Boyd: "Teens engage with networked publics for the same reasons they have always relished publics; they want to be a part of the broader world by connecting with other people and having the freedom of mobility."

Boyd: "Many adults fear networked technologies for the same reasons that adults have long been wary of teen participation in public life and teen socialization in parks, malls, and other sites where youth congregate. [...] Social media services like Facebook and Twitter are providing teens with new opportunities to participate in public life, and this, more than anything else, is what concerns many anxious adults.
