Social networking is constantly evolving. Gone are the days when MySpace and Facebook ruled the web. Now, practically everyone's gone mobile, with real-time photo and video sharing becoming the big trend that people are most excited about, especially teenagers.


Do you know the hottest social app trends for teens?












The idea of a digital footprint is not new. Children need to be aware of the trail they leave when online. Instagram images, Facebook status updates, cyberbullying, web security, parents/carers credit card information, identity theft, graphic content, password security, etc. are a  threat to their physical, digital, and overall security.  Hence, your need as a school to be more diligence is imperative!
