It’s no joke. There is identity theft and all kinds of shenanigans going on with the Internet. Yet, how many parents are really aware of what their kids do online? What they watch and WHO may be watching them? Social Media Safety is our topic for this Thursday’s #DadChat, July 31 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. We have special guest DJ Thistle as our co-host this chat.
#DadChat recently discussed the mistakes we all make in Social Media with expert John Paul Aguiar. Using the transcript as a guide, I wanted to share the best tips and advice we learned from this topic at #DadChat.
Firstly, some overall impressions I took away from the discussion. Social Media is dangerous, to a degree, for all of us. The ability to hit “Send” can be done in a fit of creativity OR a fit or anger. The latter will usually come back to haunt us. The ability to reach out via a tweet requires little forethought and, again, can be harmful if we are reacting in the moment.
