New Telstra research today reveals less than 1 in 5 (19%) Australian adults feel that they can completely keep up with or understand the latest online and social media trends popular with teens. Not only are Aussies finding it hard to keep up, but 43% of parents of 8-15 year olds also don’t feel strongly confident having conversations with their children around setting boundaries for tech and social media use.¬
To help parents who feel like they’re falling behind get up to speed with the latest social media and tech trends, Telstra is bringing together a panel of experts to share their knowledge in a free webinar, ‘Keeping Up With Teen Tech’.
Hosted by Em Rusciano, the virtual event is for any parent that has ever wondered:
• Why is my 15-year-old drinking lettuce water?
• What on earth is a FYP?
• Surely watching a gamer playing a game is not as enjoyable as playing the game, right?
The Telstra panellists will explore everything from the social platforms every parent should know about, to what’s #trending and tips on how to set boundaries and navigate conversations about online behaviour.
Telstra invites parents from across Australia to join the conversation on June 22nd at 7pm (AEST) as Em Rusciano talks with Social Media Expert Grace Watkins, Aussie TikTok sensation Scott Boersen, Telstra cyber safety pro Darren Pauli and ReachOut Parent’s Digital Content Expert Annie Wylie as they discuss and explore the ever-changing world of social platforms and tech for teens.
