New Social Media Hub Launched by SWGfL

New Social Media Hub Launched by SWGfL

We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand new hub, which delves into the broad topic of social media. For 2022, the team at SWGfL wanted to take huge topics within the field of online safety and create a place for professionals, parents and carers alike to get all the information they need in one place.

 At the start of the year, we created a gaming hub, throughout spring we launched a digital wellbeing one and now, with world social media day taking place on the 30th June 2022, we thought it only fitting to release a social media hub.

This new hub breaks down various elements of social media to highlight where risks can occur as well as showing the positive elements of using social media.

As well as an overview of the topic, the hub hosts supporting articles including:
