Dangers of social media discussed | LINCCK Civility–Compassion–Kindness

Safety is likely a concern for any parent who has a child using social media.

With that in mind, a free presentation on social media safety will be offered to the public from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 20, at the Chalet Theatre in Enumclaw. Four speakers will address social media issues from various perspectives.

With children networking online more and more, it is important to know the true capabilities of the equipment used, the newest applications available and the platforms they are performing on.

There can be many benefits to social media, but there are also burdens. The pitfalls of abuse and misuse in this new culture of communicating are becoming more evident day by day, and the Tuesday forum will provide usable tools for keeping kids safe.

The event is sponsored by LINCCK Civility–Compassion–Kindness, a part of the Enumclaw Regional Healthcare Foundation.
