By now you know that at GFM we’re passionate about social media – that’s why we’re very proud to support client Children’s Hospital Colorado in an important social media activation on Wednesday, Aug. 5 – #BullyProofSummit.
According to cyberbullying statistics from the i-SAFE Foundation, more than half of adolescents and teens have been bullied online, and about the same number have engaged in cyberbullying. At the same time, though, well over half of young people do not tell their parents when cyberbullying occurs, fearing it will only make things worse.
Unfortunately, social media plays a big role in cyberbullying – which is why we’re encouraging parents, mentors and caregivers to children of any age, to join us for Children’s Hospital Colorado’s first ever Cyberbullying Social Summit and live panel discussion on Aug. 5, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. MST. Whether in person or online via #BullyProofSummit, we hope to see you there. More details available on the website: bit.ly/1SdjnDo.
And now for the week’s news!
