(This is part of my Technology and Ministry series.)
Working with students 10-13 year olds, I often get asked by students and adults about social networking. Even just this past weekend I had a student asking me to post on his mom’s wall a note telling her she needs to let her son get a facebook account!
Most of my contact on facebook is with parents and some students who have been allowed to have an account at a young age.
Just yesterday, I was introduced to “everloop: a new generation of social networking for tweens.”
This resource is brand new and I’m looking at it both as a pastor and a father. My initial reaction is that 2nd grade is a bit young for social networking and “tweens” really has not been classified so young before. Not sure what the implications are for both of those developments.
So, here is where interaction and a blog are really helpful. I’m including some links to both the developer’s site and to other video resources and reviews. I would love to have a dialogue of comments AFTER you take the time to check out the information on these links.
So, please check out these links and offer your educated feedback as a parent, pastor, educator, or (if your parents let you) a tween or preteen perspective!
