  • Typing VS Talking
    • Majority of teens prefer texting over talking
    • – Possibly caused by prevalence of digital communication
    • – Decreases practice of verbal communication skills during youth
  • Information Overload
    • Often many resources to sort through
    • – Unproven resources may provide faulty information
    • Finding useable information is a learned skill
    • – Consider Wikipedia:  May be good information, but not professionally checked and edited
    • Gleaning all useful or interesting information from all of your favorite social networks can be a very time-consuming chore
  • Legal Issues and Concerns
    • Facebook as an example:
    • – Wikipedia contains a massive collection of legal issues that have surrounded Facebook over the years
    • – Primary concerns are related to individual privacy and data mining
  • Misuse and Abuse
    • Key issues related to teens:
    • Cyber-bullying
    • Connecting with shady characters
    • Spending too much time connected
  • Conclusion
    • Social networking sites serve a purpose and are here to stay, but should be moderated, just as all things in life should be.
