Frequently Asked Questions Who,What,When,Where and Why WHO ARE WE AND WHO ARE WE FOCUSING ON? We are an organization who will research the effects of social media (Positive and Negative). Like all organizations, we have a founder, co-founder and various other staff. www.TheSocialNetworkingEffect.com is our website where you’ll be able to see our progress once this gets funded. It also provides more of an insight of what we are all about. We are focusing on military personnel and primarily our youth. WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH? We are going to educate people of the positives and negatives of social media. We are going to expose the effects of what it does to your mental and physical state of being. There are 5 basic areas we are concentrating on….they are EDUCATION, RESEARCH, MENTAL & PHYSICAL HEALTH AND POLICY. What would possibly save a loved one’s life be worth to you? WHERE WE ARE LOCATED? Currently we all work out of our dorm rooms or private homes. Eventually we will have a corporate office located in Orlando, FL. WHERE WILL YOUR DONATIONS GO? Your donations will be used for the production of educational videos, translations, research, equipment, promotions and advertising. This is a global project so the videos will need to be translated. Linguists will be hired as well as sign language experts. We may develop a version in Brail for those who are blind. Substantial donations will receive a receipt for tax purposes. The highest donors will receive recognition in the credits area of the video. WHEN WILL THIS PROJECT MAKE AN IMPACT? This is solely left up to the general public. Everyone working for this organization is donating their time and talents. As soon as we get the proper funding…. we will be able to produce high quality videos that will reach ALL educational institutions and Military bases all over the World. HOW WE WILL ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION? WE need SPONSORS/ DONATIONS. There is a link on TheSocialNetworkingEffect.com website for donations. We are not looking for investors quite yet. This doesn’t mean we won’t entertain offers later IF the right offer is submitted. WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? WHY DO WE CARE? Imagine being in the military…imagine being far away from home over the holidays. Okay now imagine being on a laptop on Skype talking to your family and friends. You’re excited…laughing and missing being home. Your session ends. A soldier who’s happy while seeing everyone on a screen but sad now because your loved ones are gone. What EFFECT did it have on your mental status? Another example……a teenager being bullied on the internet takes their life because of a comment made about them. Depression kills so many youth. NOW IMAGINE THAT PERSON BEING YOUR SON, DAUGHTER, COUSIN OR FRIEND. Do we really need to answer WHY now?
