The average Facebook member has 130 friends and is connected to 80 community pages, groups or events. The growing popularity of social media is a global trend that is difficult to ignore. Teens and young adults were the first to spend time socializing online, but their elders have recently discovered the benefits. Statistics show that adults over age 50 are the fastest growing category of social networkers.

In this months Item of Value (click here to download) I have an interesting piece about how social media use is changing the everyday lives of many families. It also includes information on some serious problems that teens could potentially encounter and tips to help parents protect their kids online.

I hope you are enjoying all of the wonderful things associated with the holiday season. Best wishes and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
