Here we identified 4 questions or areas to discuss around Social Media
– Good Practice
– Can social media change the world
– How can encourage YP to use social media in a positive way
– Communication with young people via social media
The feedback was joined up so we will be writing up and revising our policy guidance around it. But if you want to see the pictures of the groups, they are uploaded on facebook.
Our final words of advice from the groups are:
– Should all conversations be recorded on the internet, and if so do we need to relook at all one-2-one work and safeguarding?
– Do viral clips (like KNOY 2012) work because of messages or the medium. To go viral and be engaging it either needs to be authentic or really high production quality – what’s in the middle space
– Power is being recaptured by the powerful in the online space.
Updated policies will be made available to the network soon.
