I am a member of an international service organization for girls ages 11-21 and I am friends with members globally because of social media. I communicate regularly with girls from Australia and Europe through Facebook and I follow all of my sisters on Instagram. Social media is a vital communication tool in my organization, but we have yearly workshops to teach younger girls how to be safe on social media. We value technology as a means to create friendships between girls who would not know each other otherwise but are very conscious of the dangers of Social Media. We make sure our girls are aware of the risks and are safe while making friends within our organization!
