Your teen and the social network

The public is invited to a presentation at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary on the pluses and perils of social networking.

Facebook, Twitter, MSN, and XBox – social networking is a daily reality for today’s teens.

Tomorrow night, back by popular demand, Jesse Miller will help local parents and students become more aware how they can protect their privacy online.

Two Lives – Social Media in Parallel with Reality is presented at 7 p.m. Oct. 20 at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School, in the school’s theatre.

“The Internet isn’t just on your computer,” Miller writes in a post on www.vancouvermom.ca. “Video game consoles and hand-held devices can become communication tools to the entire world, often with little thought to privacy and safety.”

It’s open to the public.

The evening is presented by the Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary Parents Advisory Council.
