The Full Picture
The Full Picture is a short film exploring how young people use social media to connect and share. The film highlights the influences and pressures young people face online and encourages them to see the full picture. Social media helps us share our lives but it does not tell the whole story. The campaign encourages young people to be mindful of what influences them and how they respond to pressures online.
The Full Picture is supported by information and advice on a dedicated campaign page available here. www.webwise.ie/thefullpicture

What do young people think?
The Full Picture was developed in conjunction with the Webwise Youth Advisory Panel. We asked the panel to share their thoughts on the role of social media in their lives, their influences online and how they respond to pressures online.
