#School #SocialMedia #Surveillance and #Suicide #Prevention, #SPSM chats 10/8/17, 9pCT.

Dr. Jonathan Singer joins #SPSM, Sunday 10/8/17, 9pCT to discuss school use of social media monitoring products in order to prevent suicide, and manage other issues related to student safety. Are we spying on kids, or is this just taking public information and using it for our students’ well-being?

Products like Snaptrends, or Digital Fly can be purchased by schools to provide monitoring of students’ public social media. User agreements and privacy disclosures vary, the ethics of this practice are unclear, and the legal precedents related to this are scant, if arguably nonexistent.

Watch a discussion about this topic with our #SPSM expert on “Suicide in Schools,” Dr. Jonathan Singer LIVE here:
