We focus on the Do’s of social media, not the Don’ts.
There are many things you shouldn’t do in life, but what if that was all anyone taught you? You wouldn’t know what to do, period. By focusing on the do’s of social media instead of the don’ts, we aim to equip and inspire, not scare.
Our positive approach to social learning aims to:
- Fuel the well-being and potential of students
- Increase trust and communication between students and their parents and school educators
- Strengthen self-esteem in a world often powered by the number of likes and views
- Improve students’ moral and real-time decision making
You see, social media is, simply, being social.
To most teens, there is no distinction. Posting to platforms often happens during physical socializing, and posts themselves are becoming increasingly interactive in real time (live-streaming is a prime example).
We use input from students 👫, parents 👨👩👧👦, and world-class leaders💡 across the country. Then we share real-life examples and social scenarios to show you what using social media positively looks like. And when each social choice you make is positive, we call it “winning.”
You’ll read “win the game of social” many times in our work because we believe social media is the biggest game in the world, one that can be won or lost. And in a world where we get one reputation, it’s never been more important to win.
Winning at social media means strengthening your reputation, encouraging and inspiring others, seizing collegiate and career opportunities, and even changing your world for the better.
We believe this because we’ve lived it, navigated it, studied it, and leveraged social media to positively shape our own lives and the lives of others, including middle school students, high school students, parents, Olympic athletes, and business leaders across the United States.
We’re all playing this game of social together.
