Realities of Social Media

The reality is that for many youth of all ages life revolves around their phone, tablet, and apps to keep them connected, informed, and visible.  But do they really know who all of those online friends are?  What happens if a "friend" one day becomes a “cyber bully" the next?  Who do they turn to for help?  And, when it comes time to apply to college, for a scholarship, or a job, how will their social media record be scrutinized by the selection panel?  Join FSYF, the technology company STG, and several cyber security experts for the answers to these and related questions about internet security.  This session is designed for youth ages 10—18 and their parents. 

Still want to attend, but have young children, ages 5 -9 ?  You can still attend.  Your children will be entertained with activities in a separate room.

Light refreshments served.
