"As an organization that works specifically with middle school students in an anti-violence program, we have become increasingly concerned about how social media is influencing youth violence, specifically cyberbullying. I have been following Dr. Sameer Hinduja and his groundbreaking research on this topic for several years now. We were fortunate to be able to have Dr. Hinduja speak to our Chairs at a recent meeting. Our Chairs come from across the nation and all are in various professions of influence over young people. Dr. Hinduja was a wealth of information and he presented it in such a way that all were interested in extending his allotted time to speak. He was knowledgeable, personable, and cared deeply about the subject of social media’s influence for good and bad on our youth. He is an expert who is accessible for follow-up as we continue to come up against methods of violence against young people that we have never dealt with prior to a decade or so ago."
