Social media is not an easy ride for everyone.
The “Better safe than sorry” guide for people with intellectual, developmental and learning disabilities and guardians, parents and relatives on what to share on social media.
Our special audience – people with intellectual, developmental and learning disabilities – struggle, because their social skills may be impaired due to their condition. They do not have neither the training nor the knowledge on how to behave on social media and on top of that, they have a hard time deciphering whether others want the best for them or not.
Especially when it comes to sharing text, video and images on the internet and especially on social media, they struggle to assess, if they are doing the right thing.
When I started working with social media for people with developmental disabilities, the phrase I heard the most was:
“What if I share something, that is wrong, and I have to go to jail for it?”
There are so many rules about what you are allowed to share on social media and what you are not and it can be difficult to know, if you are sharing something you are not allowed to. The rules are not even the same in all countries. Therefore, it can be difficult to behave properly and it all boils down to the fact, that YOU should feel safe online.
Here is our help to you.
