Episode 123: Social Media Success with Laura Tierney

Digital Dads show

Summary: Social media is an inescapable part of modern life. People everywhere check for “likes” to their posts frequently throughout the day. There is no escaping the net of the electronic social web.<br> In this episode we are joined by Laura Tierney of <a href="https://thesocialinstitute.com" target="_blank">The Social Institute</a> to help us teach our kids to use social media successfully. The truth is, kids generally don’t make a distinction in being social and being social on the internet. To them, it’s simply about connecting.<br> That’s why it’s important as parents we guide them on social platforms with more permanence and consequences than perhaps some of the old school methods of communication. Luckily, there are people like Laura out there to help us out.<br> Additional Resources<br> <br> * <a href="https://sociallockerroom.com" target="_blank">Social Locker Room</a> (for parents to connect with each other)<br> * <a href="http://community.today.com/parentingteam/post/help-teens-combat-cyberbullying-in-four-simple-steps" target="_blank">Combat Cyberbullying in 4 Simple Steps</a><br> <br> –<br> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/digitaldadsfm/" target="_blank">Join the Facebook Group</a><br> One Cool Thing<br> <br> * Andrew – <a href="https://www.wired.com/story/steven-soderbergh-new-app-mosaic/" target="_blank">Mosaic</a><br> * Brent – <a href="http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=176060&amp;p=irol-newsArticle&amp;ID=2316587" target="_blank">Lord of the Rings TV Series</a><br> <br> Patreon Support<br> Check us out on <a href="https://patreon.com/digitaldads" target="_blank">Patreon</a> and get exclusive content and swag unavailable anywhere else.
