I work in health communications and have spend a couple of years now engaging with patients and the public using Facebook and Twitter.
I'm now working on a health program aimed at 10-13 year olds. My boss has asked me to put together a list of public, charity and commercial organisations that use social media to engage with this age group. Problem is, I've never worked with this age group before, and don't have kids, so have no idea where to look!
So, I have two questions for the hive mind:
- What social media networks do kids in that age group use? I am in the UK, so really interested in what happens here, but US information is also useful. I know of Bebo and that's it!
- Who do you think uses social media networks well to communicate to 10-13 year olds?
