Usually our posts are written for small businesses and professionals, but the issue of teen cruelty and teen safety on the internet is one that deserves our attention. With the immersion of teen in the web every day, we as parents, family and friends need to understand the world they face.
According to the Pew Research Center, the adult perception of the internet is that most people (85%) are kind , the internet as it is experienced by teens is quite different, with one in five feeling that people are mostly unkind. As with any problem, the first step in fighting an issue is understanding it, and thanks to Column Five and Zone Alarm, I’m able to share with you today an infographic with some startling statistics and some actionable steps to take to help make this situation better. I hope you find it as worthwhile as I do.
