Instagram Basics

Common Sense Media is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help kids thrive in a world of media and technology. According to their website, “Kids today spend over 50 hours of screen time every week. The media content they consume and create has a profound impact on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.  Learning how to use media and technology wisely is an essential skill for life and learning in the 21st century.”

Common Sense Media recently posted a guide to what parents should know about Instagram.  You can find the full article here.
