“Technology and social media are great tools to connect us to one another and to the world, but if we are not careful, these tools will gain a grip on us,” writes author John Forrest Douglas. This is where the need for personal responsibility comes in whether it’s choosing to put down the phone or tablet when spending time with friends and family, or exercising careful consideration before posting comments and photos on social media. Douglas offers teens guidance for being savvy and safe when using technology in sections titled: Nothing is Temporary. Nothing is Anonymous, Cyber-bullying, Want to Post Something? Stop. Think About It, and Try Unplugging.
