Social Media Wellness for Teens: Angie Coiro with Ana Homayoun and Nicky Jackson Colaco
Presented by Kepler's Literary Foundation

Teenagers are asked every day to face an almost insurmountable paradox: the digital tools they need to achieve success are the same ones that cause their greatest distractions. As parents maneuver their teens through a maze of demanding schoolwork, extracurricular activities, and a healthy family life, there is often the added challenge of balancing a safe technology diet  something most parents have little guide to understanding.

Award-winning journalist and radio host Angie Coiro sits down with noted teen and millennial expert, author, speaker, and educator, Ana Homayoun and Instagram's Director of Public Policy, Nicky Jackson Colaco, for a conversation about teens, tweens, and technology.

Homayoun, whose previous work has addressed the challenges facing both young boys and young girls in todays complicated new world, has been featured on the issue of teens and social media today in the New York Times, the Pacific Standard, the Los Angeles Review of Books and more. Her new book, Social Media Wellness: Helping Teens and Tweens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World, reveals strategies parents and students can use to better manage the tides of digital interaction.

Colaco, who has served in public policy roles at Google, Facebook, and now at Instagram, shares just some of the work that one of the worlds leading social media platforms is doing to combat the challenges of our new media environment and to provide a better, safer and more secure digital space for students and parents.

Join Kepler's most dynamic host, Angie Coiro for an evening looking at the actions you and your teen can take today to maneuver the nascent world of social media better, safer, and more effectively.

Kepler's Literary Foundation is a non-profit project of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation dedicated to enriching the community through literary and cultural programs featuring notable writers, artists and original thinkers.
