#DigitalDivide Twitter Contest: Win A Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet from @McAfeeConsumer!

On the heels of our 2013 study, Digital Deception: Exploring the Online Disconnect between Parents and Kids, we’ll be running three prize drawings with our Twitter audience to promote better communication between parents and kids around internet safety.

The most important takeaway from this study is that parents are largely unaware of what their kids are actually doing online. The study found that 46% of kids would change their behavior if they knew that parents were watching, with nearly 50% looking up sites they shouldn’t be. Kids today are hiding what they are doing and it’s putting them in danger—whether they know it or not. Now is the time for parents to get tech savvy and close the Digital Divide.

With this in mind, from June 11th-28th, we’ll be holding three different prize drawings to give away a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 16GB Tablet and a 1-year subscription to the McAfee® LiveSafe service to one lucky tweeter. All you need to do to enter is retweet our #DigitalDivide content of the day that is featured with the contest hashtag, #RT2Win! The tweets each day will showcase some of the top content around the Digital Deceptions study, illustrating the disconnect between kids and parents when it comes to online activities. We hope that you’ll help us spread the word about our study to promote safer online experiences for everyone.

More Details on How to Win:

During each Drawing period, tweets will be announced every business day at 8am PT with the #RT2Win hashtag on @McAfeeConsumer feed, so keep a look out on Twitter! Each retweet must include the #RT2Win and #DigitalDivide hashtags to be eligible, and the winner will be chosen from the entries received during the time period of each Drawing.

Additionally, each lucky winner will be featured as our McAfee “Follower of the Week,” and highlighted on the @McAfeeConsumer feed with a Twitter graphic following their selection.

Help us spread awareness of the #DigitalDivide and encourage parents and kids to communicate about the risks online – follow our team on Twitter and #RT2Win!
