September 23, 2012, social media marketing agency fishbat, Inc. applauds an article published by the Star Tribune regarding the benefits of teenagers learning and using social media.
A recent article by Jeremy Olson of the Star Tribune discussed the importance of teenagers becoming social media savvy as a workplace necessity. In the article Christine Greenhow, Psychology Professor at the University of Michigan, stated, ”Social media savvy is fast becoming a workplace necessity. Employers want to hire people who can use social media well and leverage their networks for business purposes.” The article stated that although cyber-bullying is a common danger of social media, using social media with the addition of parental monitoring can benefit kids in the long run.
COO of fishbat Scott Darrohn applauds the message of this article to parents and teenagers. “It is extremely important for young adults to learn the proper ways to use social media in this day and age,” says Darrohn. “Here at fishbat we seek individuals who are social media savvy and understand how it can be used as a marketing tool. Many other businesses are looking for the same skill set in future employees, so learning social media can benefit teenagers greatly.”
As for the potential threat of cyber-bullying, fishbat understands and acknowledges the danger. In a recent fishbat Splash Video Press Release, Darrohn commended NFL star Ray Rice for bringing light to a bullying tragedy at Perry Hill High School. “Unfortunately cyber-bullying is a problem for teenagers on social media sites,” says Darrohn. “Hopefully with parental supervision, kids can use these sites correctly and acquire a skill that will benefit them later in life.”
