Young People and Social Media

There is a lot of worry and anxiety about young people’s use of the internet and social media in particular. With the controversy about ask.fm and the rise of Instagram, Twitter and even Facebook (despite experts often predicting its demise amongst young people!). This article about Digital Media and young people is a very interesting piece from a senior researcher at Microsoft (other computer software companies are available) all about how we talk about social media with teenagers, and perhaps is a good article to share with the parents of those in your groups.
