Online social networking is just a normal part of life for most teens, but many discover too late that uncritical participation can lead to distorted relationships and even stunted personal character. This tech-friendly guidebook will help teens and pre-teens think through the dangers and opportunities of Facebook and other social networks and set healthy boundaries that will keep their hearts and minds safe and strong. They'll also find frank discussions about sexting, internet pornography, and online gaming and find out how to protect themselves and their future from the consequences of sin and addiction. Parents, teachers, educators, youth pastors, counselors, and mentors will find the latest information on media and technology to help them guide young lives.
