The Kiwi Commons Youth Panel will also be joining Moreau and a panel of parents and educators to participate in an Internet safety discussion aligned with Safer Internet Day and Toronto’s Social Media Week. KiwiCommons.com, a website that provides youth Internet safety news and resources, hopes to educate families and teens about how to stay safe while using online and electronic means of communication.
“In this era of email, texting and social networking, the Internet and social media have become the new means of socialization,”
The 2010 Toronto conference attracted over 2,000 people in 2010 – including CEOs, entrepreneurs, journalists, bloggers, brand managers, CMOs, social media strategists, artists and activists – to participate in events across a wide range of topics, industries and causes. Social Media Week Toronto 2011 will expand on last year's event with a larger schedule and more participants.
Kiwi Commons will be tweeting and video blogging live from the event with panelist discussions, Q&A sessions and programming. To join in on the discussion, follow @kiwi_commons on Twitter.
The Social Family program and panel discussion, which is sponsored by the Bank of Montreal and Bunch Family, takes place on February 10, 2011 at the Manulife Centre in Toronto from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM. For more information, visit www.socialmediaweek.org/
