With the continued growth of social networking as a pervasive presence in our day-to-day lives, the need is greater than ever for a guide for young readers that helps them understand their engagement with this key medium of online communication. This book breaks down the basics of social media, its benefits, and its dangers for Internet users today. By explaining the concept of networking—both on and offline—readers will learn the importance of social interaction and meaningful relationships, as well as how to safely use online communities to interact with friends and avoid cyberbullies, or “trolls.” Sidebars shed light on navigating the various social media websites mentioned within the text.
