SOCIAL MEDIA TECH HELP – You Asked… We Delivered.

This year at May Fete do more than avoid silly string ambushes and hand out 5 dollar bills!

The Social Media Task Force is partnering with DiStasi’s at 400 to offer you the opportunity to sit down with your own personal “Tech Guru” and learn how to protect your family from pitfalls associated with the digital age.  Based on your feedback from events this year, we heard that you would like a one-on-one help session to assist you through a variety of safety precautions, including but not limited to locking down privacy settings on your kid’s favorite apps and games, the in’s and out’s of parental controls and location services, etc.  Additionally, for a quick stop, we will provide handouts on a wide variety of pertinent topics and would welcome you to visit and chat. As a community, one of the most important tools we have in facing down these challenges are the conversations we share about how to cultivate healthy relationships with technology for our families!

Please stop by DiStasi’s at 400 from 2-6pm on MayFete, and enjoy a select menu of food & drinks for our event.  Secure your spot now through the SignUpGenius Link:
