    10. 10. In the 1980’s, the most popular “hang out” site in the U.S. was the mall– a public space where teens could gossip, support one another, share information, flirt, joke, and goof around. Social networks have become the new stomping ground for teens. The site has changed, but the practices are quite similar. Social media is simply another place for teens to connect with friends. Adults are more likely to use social media for “networking”– reconnecting with old high school acquaintances, find business connections, or date. *Boyd, 2001. #SM4TEENS
