   schema:description "What is new about how teenagers communicate through services such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? Do social media affect the quality of teens' lives? This book uncovers some of the major myths regarding teens' use of social media. It explores tropes about identity, privacy, safety, danger and bullying. Ultimately, it argues that society fails young people when paternalism and protectionism hinder teenagers' ability to become informed, thoughtful and engaged citizens through their online interactions. Yet despite an environment of rampant fear-mongering, teens often find ways to engage and to develop a sense of identity. Offering insights gleaned from more than a decade of original fieldwork interviewing teenagers across the United States, it concludes reassuringly that the kids are all right." ;
