The Internet was made for awesome…

With all of the talk about cyberbullying, it’s important to remember the amazing ways in which kids are using the Internet to effect social change. Advocating, fund raising, collaborating… it’s unreal how globally minded they’ve become.

New research tells us that anti-bullying prevention isn’t working, so it’s time to take a different approach.

When we shift our focus to the positive, whether it’s with Julia Bluhm and her petition against Seventeen, Jeremiah Anthony and his West High Bros – or any of the other countless examples out there – we help the kids shift their focus too. They stop thinking about ways they can use technology to bring each other down… and are inspired by the possibilities for awesome instead.
