Facebook and other social media sites inherently are not bad. This is how the kids interact. But what is important is that kids understand this is the beginning of their digital footprint. They have to be vigilant in protecting their digital footprint. As a parent, you need to make sure that you teach your children to understand the accountability and the responsibility of being online. And it is not just they might say something offensive to a friend. Colleges, future employers will look at this and we say there is the enter factor. Once it goes on Facebook or any other social media site, it is there forever. So parents, please check in on what your kids are doing online.

Technology Expert

Jonathon Fishman is passionate about technology.  Not for what it does, but for where it can lead you. The idea for his company, Ben’s Ranch, struck Jonathon when his stepmother asked his advice in buying a computer for her grandson. She didn't care about the brand or specs, she simply wanted to know how it would help her Grandson.  Jonathon realized that technical support was centered around rescue, repair and complicated conversations. He believed that the conversation should start with how does technology empower the use. Ben's Ranch became the industry standard for personal and small business IT by shifting the conversation repair to usability. Jonathon is happily married and the father of a seven-year old and a nine-year old.
