Social Media, Social Life: How Teens View Their Digital Lives

The Common Sense Media’s Program for the Study of Children and Media recently published a research report entitled, Social Media, Social Life: How Teens View Their Digital Lives. The report is based on a nationally representative, probability-based sample of 1,030 13- to 17-year-olds on their use of texting and social media. The study provides a snapshot of how U.S. teens experience the role of social media in their social and emotional lives and how they perceive social media (like Facebook and Twitter) affects their relationships with family and friends and feelings about themselves.
