Social Media is part of our life - like it or not and it will be part of our futures with many of our children growing up and becoming social influencers of the future whether this is in front of the camera or behind the scene coding and processing information.
With this in mind, it is vitally important that we understand the positive impact it can have, but also the negative impact, particularly in young people's mental health.
Knowing what is 'fake news' and understanding that in today's society the camera does lie, is just as important as knowing how to protect yourselves, using the correct privacy setting and knowing the legal age requirements in order to have an account with most if not all social media platforms.
In order to help our families navigate the complexities of social media, we have teamed up with Knowsley CLC to provide you with regular updates on how to manage your 'virtual life', ensuring our families are risk aware as well as enjoy the benefits social media can bring.
