Social networking sites such as Facebook™, SnapChat™and Instagram™ have become very popular with many technology users. Understanding these sites and how they allow users to communicate and share information is critical. These sites can be accessed anywhere there is an Internet connection often on Smartphones. All users need to be aware of the information that is shared on these sites to protect their identity as well as friends. Check out a post by Hands Free Mama (Rachel Macy Stafford) on the access of technology tools for Teens and Tweens.
Here are a few ideas:
Twitter is a micro-blogging site. It used to allow users to post short messages (or Tweets) of 140 characters or less but is now expanding this number to help share more information. The origin of Twitter started with cell phones (this is the reason for the small number of characters) but has grown beyond its original idea. Users enjoy Tweeting as it is a quick and easy way to share information.
