Advances in technology make it easier for humans in their activities. The internet has become mandatory for use in various aspects of life. Social media users in Indonesia reach 150 million people. Most internet users are aged 15 to 19 years, which is 91%. At present the way to get along with teenagers is not only by direct contact but also indirectly by using media or social networking. The use of social media is sometimes difficult to control either by parents or the school, so there is a need for education for adolescents to be more optimal in using social media for anything positive. The purpose of this mass empowerment activity is to provide understanding to teenagers that social media can provide many positive benefits if we use it in a smart and maximum way, and invites young people to be smart in using social media. The implementation method is through counseling and discussion with high school students 1 Panga.
