Social Media and More

“Don’t use social media to impress people, use it to impact people”


If you want to know about working with social media for fun and for profit, our three teen social media gurus have the answers. In Teenship, Ruhani talks about using social media as a tool for social justice as well as for expressing one’s feelings. She has thousands of Tik Tok followers and has launched an Instagram for Express Yourself Teen Radio. In Silver Lining, Diya gives us a step-by-step guide to being a micro-influencer with a smaller, yet more targeted

audience. Many Micro influencers only talk about one or two topics — their niche — which

allows them to organically grow on social media. Social influencers earn money and free goods when done properly. Diya is a micro influencer with fashion, and she developed a safety app, too, KeepMeSafe, available in App stores. In Breaking Boundaries, Sidney talks about how social media has changed the trajectory of scientific research. Through apps like Instagram and Twitter, scientists have developed the ability to extensively disseminate their findings. Scientific research has customarily been closed off to the public, however, with social media, research is available to a wider variety of people. She gets her news from social media and she is the co-founder of the teen online Humanities Plus Journal, an international platform for perspectives that transcend the divides between the Humanities and Stem.

Social media is a dynamic and effective way to interact with the world to make a difference when used politely, positively, and kindly. Join the conversation and follow us on social media
