What Kids Are Using to Bully Today - Instagram

I learned about a bullying case today involving 6th and 7th graders using a social media tool called Instagram. I thought Instagram was a photo sharing site, but realize now it is more than that. I read the comments the kids were writing in this case and was appalled. Parents, be aware of this photo sharing/social media tool kids are using. I understand it is difficult to keep up with it all, but this is what many kids are using. Monitor what your kids are saying and doing on their phones, tablets and computers. Here is a link with good info on Instagram for parents.
