"What’s ‘Share’? – Let’s Click It!"

Do you become a social media expert? Don't you think that too many young children post and share information way too recklessly? We've got something you might check out...

You think in today’s times of social media, no one can be so naive to click on the ‘share’-button recklessly? Way off the mark! Think back: have you ever been taught about how to use social media websites properly? Have you ever taught your kids? If yes, congratulations! If not, you’re not alone. Think for ten seconds: do you know someone who teaches young kids how to handle Facebook and Twitter? No? Neither do I.

wants to change this situation. Based in Tarrytown, our belief is that social technology is leveraging the power of social media to establish social good. Social media is a part of every teen life. Therefore they should be taught about the paths and trends of social technology and how to use it to direct their lives towards a positive outcome. Therefore we organize a Social Media Tech Camp, especially for teens between 13 – 18 years.

Our instructors will help our youth develop best practices that will give them a positive impact in their lives. Our camp is not only limited to social media websites such as Facebook or Twitter, though. Since everyone seems to have a Smartphone, we will be teaching Java- and Android Game-classes. But wait, there is so much more! The Social Media Tech Camp will be held at Iona College in New Rochelle from June 25th until August 17th. If you are already excited, go to www.froogleinstitute.com/camp and get the latest news about your chance to become a social media expert! Don’t forget to register!
