Local Organization Teaches Students Social Media Posting Do’s and Dont’s

With social media playing such a big part in our lives, that could we be a positive thing or even a negative thing.

That’s why one local organization in Alpena is taking time out to teach students at Thunder Bay Junior High School the affects of social media when looking for jobs.

Yesterday students learned what types of posts turn employers off plus tools to help them when using popular social media apps, and sites.

Social media users typically spend an average of two hours every day sharing, liking, tweeting and updating on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and more.

According to teachers at Thunder Bay Junior High School most of their students are using the popular app called ‘Snapchat.’

Besides learning how to use social media the proper way, there was one main lesson both Michigan Works and their teacher wanted each student to learn: ‘Think before you post.’
