My latest article is up! Fear and Panic vs. Education and Common Sense | Navigating The Waters. This echoes some of what I have said before about parents being responsible for understanding what their kids are getting up to online but it also points out something that is so often neglected in the media: the rules for being safe and for being a good person are basically the same online and off.
I was interviewed for Social Media Week on the topic of Children and Social Media. While I do think about this topic a great deal (as is evidenced by how much I’ve written and spoken on the subject), I am turning my attention to how I, as an adult, communicate with my Facebook friends who are under 18 year of age (yes, an article is being written). It’s an interesting topic mainly because I am still figuring it all out for myself. If anyone has any insights from their own experiences, I’d love to hear them.
