PRLog - Feb. 5, 2013 - Gabe O' Neill, President of the non-profit, Kids Are Heroes®, presents "Social Networking: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". Drawing on his experiences working with teens all over the world, and four years of extensive work in social media, O’Neill will demonstrate how teens can get the most out of social networking sites without damaging their reputations.
Teens in Social Media
Parents today face more challenges than ever. Social networking presents a new and somewhat unfamiliar frontier. There are important benefits to social networking, but there are also very real dangers. Without parental guidance, some situations may arise where truly “good kids” can unwittingly damage their own reputations permanently. Many colleges and employers use social media as part of their admissions or applications process. O’Neill will use "real world" examples to explain how some teens are putting their futures at risk.
Parents and teens are welcome; however, parents are strongly cautioned that the presentation is not appropriate for younger students, as the "real world" examples include some graphic language.
The presentation will be held in the Community Room at the C. Burr Artz Library at 6 pm on Monday, February 18.
The presentation is free, but space is limited so tickets are required. To obtain tickets register now at http://teenrep.kidsareheroes.org/
Due to the popularity of the subject, an encore presentation will be repeated at the Community Room at the C. Burr Artz Library at 6 pm on Monday, March 4. Registration for the second event (which is also free) is now open at http://teenrep.kidsareheroes.org/
