The Top 10 Social Media Apps According to Students, and What Parents Need to Know

New social media apps are popping up every month, and it feels nearly impossible for parents to keep up with which ones are trending versus which ones are “cringey”. Keep up with the trend by reading The Social Institute's Laura Tierney's article 

 

 


LHS Social Media Safety

Parents, please continue to talk to your teens about how they use social media. Remind them that posting a threat or negative comment is hurtful and can even be against the law. Mean, illegal, or negative social media postings are online forever and can be seen by law enforcement, future employers, military recruiters, and college admission officers.  It is imperative that our students practice good digital citizenship to avoid embarrassing themselves and their families and/or dealing with law enforcement for potential cybercrimes. Remind them that there is no anonymity in the digital world and that there is always a record/digital footprint of anything that is put on a social media site. Occasional morning announcements are made for students as friendly reminders. Thank you for your continued support.
