Remaining Safe and Avoiding Dangers Online: A Social Media Q&A with Kimberly Mitchell
Prevention Researcher, v17 n5 p7-9 2010
The news media is often full of stories about the dangers of social media, including such concerns as cyberbullying and sexting. In this article, Kimberly Mitchell, a researcher noted for her experience on youth internet victimization, answers questions about the risks of social media and how we can keep youth safe online. Questions in this Q&A concern: (1) the prevalence and types of predatory activity aimed at youth; (2) the relationship between in-person and cyberbullying; (3) the youth most at risk for online sexual solicitation and strategies we can employ to make them safer; (4) how to keep up with the ever-changing technology and the new risks it might pose; and (5) how a youth's SES might impact the ways we work with them to stay safe using social media.
