Teens, Tweens, and Social Networking

Course Objectives:

We often have assumptions about how teens and tweens use the Internet.

Are those assumptions true? Are teens interested or concerned about their online privacy? What kind(s) of social media should your library use?

Learn the answers to these questions and many more, as well as discovering if your library can effectively engage (or not) with young people in social media.
