Impact of Social Media on Adolescents

A survey conducted by Common Sense provides a snapshot of how U.S. teens experience the role of social media in their social and emotional lives.

Key findings include:

-       Teens are avid, daily users of social media.
-       Teens are much more likely to report that using social media has a positive impact on their social and emotional lives than a negative one.
-       Most teens prefer face-to-face communication, and many of them think using social media can interfere with that.
-       Some teens wish they could disconnect more often—and that the people around them would, too.
