Move Over YouTube…Parents of Teens on Social Media Watch This

“Woman With Mobile Phone” by David Castillo Dominici


There already seems to be plenty of dangers out there for kids, and plenty more warnings for parents to heed when their children are engaging in online communications… but here’s a new one: Livestreaming- social media style.

Seems to me like this could be similar to iPhone Facetime, but with greater power and dangers.

Remember Snapchat? Messages would ‘automatically self-destruct’, and there were a few other apps… But, this is a whole new world. Check this out and don’t forget to always discuss internet safety, the dangers of social sites and positive ways to use such mediums.

In the end, it always comes down to our kids making their own choices. The best we can do is equip them with knowledge and information.
