Social Media Resources
For 11-16 yrs / Secondary school / Key stage 3
Social media enables young people to communicate, discover and share with friends. They can also join global networks with mutual interests and concerns.
The more informed our young people are, the safer they will be, as they enjoy the ever-growing number of online opportunities.
This resource will encourage students to think more about:
- The types of social media available to them
- The advertising they are seeing on them, and how to manage it
- Their relationship with social media sites, their sponsors and advertisers
- The business models that allow them to access social media services for free, or at very low cost
