Got teens? (Not yet for me, but it’s comin’ quick… I know.) How to clean up a teen’s online image can be daunting. At the moment my daughters are barely in elementary school, but I know that college and jobs are right around the corner. What to do if, one day, we need to clean up their digital footprints? Because, you know, other kids might post something unflattering about them (or, they just might mistakes and post something unflattering about themselves too).
Whenever I worry about a topic in my present or future parenting… I figure it best to explore it and talk about it on air, as part of my CBS Los Angeles FAB Mom segments. Might as well learn together.
Thanks to Josh Ochs — LA-based social media expert and speaker who founded SafeSmartSocial.com, a site dedicated to helping teens and parents create positive digital footprints for pursuing college and career goals — I learned clever & brilliant tricks for cleaning up a teen’s online image before college and/or job applications.
AND! MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THE DETAILS FOR HOW TO DO THIS SAVVY STUFF WE TALK ABOUT IN THE VIDEO OVER ON CBSLA.COM, RIGHT HERE — BECAUSE I INCLUDED THE SAFE-SMART-SOCIAL LINKS THAT OFFER STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS. (Write this in caps because it’s important, y’all!)
