1 Evaluating the effectiveness of social media in promoting audience engagement Jennifer Berktold Senior Study Director Westat National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing, and Media, Atlanta, Georgia, August 11, 2009 The Boss of Me case study

2 I dont want no drama in my life, even though we have a little bit, but no more letting people control you. Thats drama, because then you become something that youre not. -- Mary J. Blige

3 INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE Teens dont achieve true Intimacy Partners are constantly being redefined making the word less relevant Reducing violence is our ultimate goal but strategy should be prevention EARLY RELATIONSHIP CONFLICTS Formative years should be emphasized Relationship is a more open term reflective of shifting expectations Conflicts can be a frequent precursor to violence Reframing the Issue

4 Five key strategies from research for reaching teens (ages 14 – 18, both genders, all races and ethnicities) on this issue: 2) Target the drama with humor and authentic teen language 3) Promote self-empowerment 4) Offer tools and resources to dial down the drama 5) Leverage teens organic media culture 1) Take an empathic and non-judgmental stance The Strategic Approach

5 Being the boss of you means youre in complete control of you at all times in your relationships. It means you refuse to submit to your own feelings of anger, fear, jealousy or insecurity. When you allow your emotions to negatively influence your actions, you lose control. And when you lose control, youre not the boss of anything. BOM (Boss of Me) is dedicated to helping young people stay in charge of their own relationship drama. BOM provides tools to help teens maintain and manage their cool, instead of losing it, during a relationship conflict. BOM or Boss of Me
