      Social Media privacy is of concern to parents and teachers of our young people. Cybersafety is an important new skill for everyone.

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 15, 2015 3:17 PM

Only 10 percent of teenagers do not use social media.  I know one of my good friends has no social media.  It surprises me that she has not gotten at least Facebook yet.  Social media has never been something that was important to her.  I applaud her for that.  I like social media because I can see what my friends are up to and keep an eye on them.  The growth of Instagram has increased 5 percent while Facebook has decreased 9 percent in 2013.  Instagram and Snapchat are mostly used by teens ages 13 to 18.  61 percent of people use Tumblr and say it is their favorite.  I have never been on Tumblr.  I did not know it was that popular.  On social media sites 91 percent of people post photos of themselves.

This article talks about how teens interest in Facebook has been decreasing the last few years.  A Pew Internet Study found that 84 percent of Internet users ages 18 to 29 use Facebook.  Pew did the same study the previous year and the percentage was 86.  Every year it seems Facebook has been decreasing.  The article makes a list of social media networks that teens are into today.  Some examples are Snapchat, WhatsApp, Tumblr and Vine.  Out of the entire list I only have two of those sites.  I have never heard of the WhatsApp before I started doing this project.  This reminds me of the article "Teens Social Media:What They Use With Who."

More teens are creating and sharing material on the internet. 28% of online teens have blogs, up from 2004 with growth fueled almost entirely by girls. "Super communicators" rise as email fades as a tool for teens.

I thought that this infographic was very cool and shows the reader a clear understanding of teens and how they use social media through their lives. Even though the article didnt say much, the infographic is enough to show that teens use social media frequently.

A study done at the University College of London by The Global Social Media Impact study found that Facebook is not as important to teens as it use to be.  This is caused by having parents and teachers on this site.  This article includes a picture of how teens ages 16 to 18 are using social media.  Snapchat and the WhatsApp, teens only use those sites with close friends.  For a wider range of friends they use Twitter.  On Instagram teens add friends and strangers.  The only strangers on Instagram I follow are celebrities.  For family members teens use Facebook.  On Facebook I watch what I post because my mom is always watching.  Which is no big deal to me anymore.

Are You Addicted To Social Media?

Are You Addicted To Social Media? | Facebook and teens | Scoop.it
This is a teen-written article from our friends at Teenink.com. “I’ll just check it once more before I start,” I say to myself on a daily basis.
Sarah's insight:

Social media including facebook is ruining kids in our century. I agree with the article that it is an addication and that we need to stop it now because teenagers are getting affected by it. Their school work is decreasing and in the future if they dont have good grades, they wont get a good job and social media can possibly ruin their whole life.

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 12, 2015 6:31 PM

This article was written by a teen which gives you a good sense of how social media does effect teenagers.  The teen describes how easy it can be to become addicted to social media.  To some teens social media is the new drug.  You can become addicted to it without even realizing.  Being addicted to social media is just as dangerous being addicted to drugs and alcohol.  For me social media does distract me from studying and homework.  it is hard to resist looking to see what my friends are doing.  Trying to focus and put my photo away is a challenge.  Sometimes I wish social media was not around.  Life would be easier.  It seems April, the teen writing this article has the same problems as me when it comes to social media.  We both do homework for awhile and tell ourselves we will look on Facebook for only a minute then go back to work.  But that is not the case of either of us.  Social media is almost impossible to ignore and not be apart of.  Clubs and friends post important information on these sites and without the site it would be difficult to get this information.  being in class it is also hard not to look at social media.  I can tell my fellow classmates have the problem.  Whenever I look around my classes I can see people on Facebook or Twitter.  Social media is my drug.

This is so cool! I LOVE how it is so clear and readable. I think it is really good that most teens keep their media private to limit who can see what they post. This can be good because strangers cant see what they post.

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 15, 2015 3:13 PM

This article shows more statistics about Facebook and Twitter.  16 percent of teens on social media set up their profiles to automatically put their locations on their statuses and comments they post.  I thought that number would be higher.  Some of my Facebook friends always put their location.  I personally do not want people knowing where I am at all times.  In reality is should be much lower.  Wow 33 percent of teens are Facebook friends with people they have never met.  Also 24 percent of teens post videos of themselves on these sites.

Teens, Social Media, and Privacy | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project | Facebook and teens | Scoop.it

Teens are sharing more information about themselves on social media sites than they have in the past, but they are also taking a variety of technical and non-technical steps to manage the privacy of that information. Despite taking these privacy-protective actions, teen social media users do not express a high level of concern about third-parties (such as businesses or advertisers) accessing their data; just 9% say they are “very” concerned.

I think that it is interesting that teens want people to know exactly who they are even though they all know the consquences and that people can do harm to them.

As always, interesting research findings.

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 12, 2015 6:24 PM

This article posted from The Pew Research Center shows with different graphs and percentages how much more information teenagers today are posting on Facebook.  The article compares what teens posted on Facebook in 2006 vs 2012 on their profiles.  Categories compared between the two years were photos of themselves, school name, and the city where they live are a few examples.  Every category in 2012 had higher percentages than 2006.  What stuck out to me on the chart was that in 2006 two percent of people posted their phone number compared to twenty percent in 2012.  That is a big difference.  This shows that teens today are seen as careless about what information they post on Facebook and other social media.  Having your number on these sites is dangerous.  60 percent of teens on Facebook have their profile private.  Also the article shows that 24 percent of online teens use Twitter which has risen sixteen percent since 2011.  Hopefully more teens make their profiles private.  The article goes more into depth about this issue.

Sarah's insight:

Social media is destroying teens minds and making them weaker in their social skills. They may be able to communicate online but they wont be able to interact face to face. This is not going to help them later in life.

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 12, 2015 6:25 PM

This articles main topic is how social media has changed the way teens ages 13 to 24 communicate with others.  Today most young people prefer meeting people through the computer rather than face-to-face.  It is good to know how to communicate with others online as well as face-to-face.  Online communication is good as long as it is in moderation.  Communicating online is an effective way to communicate.  It is fast and easy.  Kids are able to practice their social skills online before interacting face-to-face.  Meeting someone online first helps take the pressure off when you meet face-to-face.  A study in Australia suggests that the internet could negatively affect meaningful relationships, social support, self-confidence and social abilities.  If online communication is used too much it could hinder a teen's communication skills.  But if used moderately it could help them become more comfortable communicating with others.

Facebook Teens Can Now Post Globally - Business 2 Community

Facebook Teens Can Now Post Globally - Business 2 Community | Facebook and teens | Scoop.it

Teens should not be able to post globally on facebook. It has already caused so many problems and opening up so the whole world to see will make the problems worse.

Rachelle Wright's curator insight, May 12, 2015 6:28 PM

Since October 2013 teens can now post globally on Facebook.  Teens are able to share their posts publicly on this site.  Also now you can follow anyone that is not your friend.  The reason Facebook created this new option was to let teens make their own campaigns and team messages more widespread.  Teens do not have to use this new option and Facebook does give out cautions before they choose to post it publicly.  This new change allows advertisers and marketers focus on a more clear target audience.  Parents should warn their children about this new change.  Monitoring their Facebook is also a good idea.  I have never participated in this new Facebook change.  I always have everything blocked/protected as much as possible.  I do not want strangers seeing what I posted....but some people do.
