Social-media expert to speak on cyberbullying
A social-media expert is to discuss cyberbullying and inappropriate online behaviour at a talk tonight.
Deana Puccio, a former criminal prosecutor in New York, will make a presentation at Bermuda High School tonight from 7pm to 8.30pm.
She is the cofounder of The Raising Awareness and Prevention Project, set up to advise young people, parents and youth workers about internet safety and body image problems.
The presentation will focus on responsible and irresponsible social media use, likes and dislikes, inappropriate posting of photos and videos, bullying, cyberbullying and related subjects.
A spokeswoman for BHS told parents: “We hope you will be able to attend this important session and come away with some valuable tools to help you as parents empower your children to make wise choices online.”
The free talk will take place in the Queen Elizabeth Assembly Hall at the school.
