Digital Natives and Social Media Behaviors: An Overview
Lusk, Brooke
Prevention Researcher, v17 n5 p3-6 2010
Internet usage has dramatically increased over the past decade, and adolescents, or digital natives as they are sometimes called, are readily immersing themselves in life online. In the past ten years, teens' use of the internet has risen from just under 75% of teens in 2000 to over 93% in 2009. With so many teens online and able to access the array of offerings it provides, it is important to understand how youth incorporate the internet into their lives. Laying the foundation for this issue on teens and social media, this overview article provides a general familiarity to adolescents' use of social media, as well as some of the potential benefits and concerns.
