MySpace For Parents Workshops

The Library will be holding two workshops about MySpace in November at the Archdale and Asheboro Library.

With 100,000 million users and 230,000 new profiles added each day, MySpace is the single most-visited site online, and accounts for more than four percent of all U.S. Internet traffic. It’s a haven for teens, but attention to the negative aspects of this kind of online experience has raised concerns about the value of such “social networking” sites.

To illuminate the pros and cons of social networking online, the Randolph County Public Library will host a program entitled “MySpace for Parents” at the Archdale Public Library and at the Asheboro Public Library. The Archdale workshop will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 9, and the Asheboro edition will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 16.

At each program, participants will learn what MySpace is, how it is valuable, how kids are using it and what parents can do to make it a positive, productive and safe experience. Participants also will learn how libraries are using MySpace to reach out to teens.

So...stop on by...your's truly will be leading the event.

Thanks for reading,
