  8. 8. Dangers of Social Media What we know about teens: • They are constantly trying to define themselves. • They crave positive feedback to help them see how their identity fits into their world. • They use social media for this feedback... but they are looking in a dangerous place. How is this harmful: • The danger exists in the possibility of a very public rejection because negative feedback is there for anyone and everyone to see. • Another danger is that teens ask for feedback without learning first that not everyone will respond in a supportive way.
