Vickyd5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent book!December 11, 2017VickydQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a great book! I learned so much about social media. Loved how the author tied it to God's Word. I received a free book but the review is totally my opinion.
Jennifer K Powell5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent, engaging read.November 16, 2017Jennifer K PowellQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was an excellent read - engaging and informative and helped me articulate ways to talk to my kids about social media and device use. The biggest message that stuck with me is that what we post out there is forever. My 12.5 year old daughter read the book and it led us to some important discussions and changes she has decided to make about how she uses her phone. I highly recommend this book to both parents, preteens, and teens. There were some scary and disturbing sections, which were appropriate to the book and helped my daughter see how serious indiscriminate social media and phone use can be.
I received a complimentary copy of this book by Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. My opinions are my own.
tmurrellTNAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Social MediaOctober 31, 2017tmurrellTNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There is so much technology out there available for teens and yet they often don't have the knowledge or maturity to deal with the consequences that often result from unfortunate choices. The author has broken down the various social media sites and walks the reader through the pitfalls and nuances of using each site. The book is broken up into 21 chapters, or tips, with a series of questions at the end. There is also an introduction with a letter to parents.
I was expecting a dry and more adult focused book. Thankfully I was wrong. This book is actually written for teens and is perfect for the target audience. The letter to the parents is wonderful and after reading the into and the rest of the book, I had no worries about passing the book onto my teenager. My son actually wanted to read the book and sped through it. I couldn't believe that it kept his attention since he prefers fiction. The author did a great job of pointing out some of the dangers and addressing them without coming across as preachy. Loved this book and will be keeping it for my daughter when she gets older. I would definitely recommend this book for any parent with teens.
I received a copy of this book from Barbour. All thoughts expressed are my own.
Sharon5 Stars Out Of 5Get safely "Connected"October 24, 2017SharonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Being sure our teens are safe in today's social media-focused society is among a parent's top worries. This is a great resource to guide teens in making good choices regarding social media, mobile devices, and media in general.
Written in the tone of a good friend, it offers clear advice and gentle questions to make teens thinks about their choices. Tips on how to stay safe, use good judgement, and ensure they are putting their best "selfie" out there for the world to see are delivered with humor and fun.
What a great gift (or stocking-stuffer for the upcoming holidays!) this would be for the teen in your family, church, or small group. They (and their parents!) will thank you for it!

Mark5 Stars Out Of 5right on, great bookOctober 13, 2017MarkQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was written for teens, but I believe you could drop "teens" from the title, as it would be a good book for adults too.....though some of the tips are definitely more for teens.
The book is well written in a style that should hold a teenager's attention, especially with it being divided up into tips. McKee addresses online safety, how to deal with cruelty, being careful about pictures, and even things like not being so involved in your phone that you get hurt or killed because you were not paying attention.
Social media is great, and the internet is a great and wonderful tool. However, it has its bad points and a dark side. Hopefully parents talk to their kids about these issues, but this book is a great tool to help discuss the dangers. I found it an interesting read, and the tips are right on and helpful. Definitely recommended.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
