Social Media Among Our Children:

Presented By: Joey Fabian

June 13, 2014 | Kent State University

What are these applications and how can I monitor them?

in this workshop we will
In This Workshop We Will:

  • Learn about the implications that contributing to social media platforms has
  • Explore what parental controls are available for social media platforms
why is this important
Why Is This Important?

Many parents wonder what exactly their children are spending countless of hours doing on their electronic devices everyday. While children are spending time on their devices playing games, reading, and listening to music; they are also spending a lot of their time in the digital world of social media. Some parents may know their children are spending time on social media platforms, but may be unaware of just what their child is able to do on these sites. This workshop is not in any way meant to alarm or scare you to stopping your child from using these applications, as many of them are beneficial in ways. This workshop is actually the exact opposite; we are here today to show you what these applications are, how they are being used, how they can be used by your children in a more private and secure way, and how you as a parent can ensure you children are safe and not sending out an image of themselves that will come back later in life to haunt them.

implications of social media platforms
Implications of Social Media Platforms
  • It is important that our children understand that what goes out into the world wide web, is no longer private and can never be brought back. Anyone seeing posts of text, picture, or video have the ability of saving those postings and spreading them.
  • When posts are made that do not reflect well on an individual, that can come back to haunt them at a later time in their life (i.e. high school, college, and even when trying to attain a job)

Parental Control Options
  • One way of ensuring that our children are making smart decisions when it comes to what they are posting online is for parents to be cognizant of what their children are posting. This can be done in a couple ways
    • Have the ability to have access to your child’s username and passwords so that you can check in on their account
    • “Friend” or “Follow” them on the various social networking sites that have feeds to posts so that you can see what they are posting (please note that not all these social media platforms – i.e. SnapChat and Kik – have this ability; also note that it is possible for your children to customize their privacy settings to block you from seeing things that others can still see).
    • Utilize third-party software/applications that allow you to monitor what your child is posting (i.e. SafetyWeb or Net Nanny Social)

  • We will also be walking around the room so that you can ask and have answered any questions you may have.
