For the next part of the Youth Work and Social Networking
research I'm hoping to put together a range of case studies on how youth services have engaged with online social networking. For example:
Has your service set up profiles on a social network?
Have you build your own bespoke social network? Or built social networking features into existing websites?
Do you offer training / advice sessions to young people on safe social networking?
Have you had staff training on using social networks?
Do you use social networks to promote positive activities in your youth service?
Are you engaging with social networks in some other way?
If so - drop me a line or drop a reply in here.
I'm particularly interested in:
*What you did and where the idea came from
*What benefits it has brought, and what the challenges have been in getting it to work
*The one thing you would do differently if you were starting the project again today
*The one thing you would definitely keep the same
I'm aiming to write up as many case studies as I can - and to feature them in the final report (which will be a lot more accessible / visually appealing than the interim paper...)
