A new study from the Pew Research Center and Docstoc shed some light on just who uses social and on what platforms. In terms of racial and ethnic groups online, Hispanics lead the pack at 72% engagement, with African-Americans trailing at 68%, who are ahead of Caucasians at 65%.
Teens take steps to shape their reputation, manage their networks, and mask information they don’t want others to know.
Teens are cognizant of their online reputations and take steps to curate the content and appearance of their social media presence. Overall, there are relatively few demographic differences between groups around these kinds of reputation management behaviors—older and younger teens are for the most part equally likely to prune or edit their profiles in these ways, as are boys and girls (with some modest exceptions as will be discussed in more detail below). Among teen social media users, nearly six in ten teens (59%) have deleted or edited something that they posted to their profile in the past.
About half of teen social media users (53%) have deleted comments that others have made on their profile or account.
Just under half (45%) of teen social media users have removed their name from photos that have been tagged to identify them. About one in three (31%) teen social media users have deactivated or deleted a social media profile or account.
One in five teen social media users (19%) say they have posted an update, comment, photo or video to a social media site that they later regretted sharing. Teens who are concerned about third party access to their personal information are also more likely to engage in online reputation management. Teens who are “somewhat” or “very” concerned that some of the information they share on social media sites might be accessed by third parties like advertisers or businesses without their knowledge are more likely to engage in various reputation management activities when compared with teens who do not share these concerns. Teens who have been contacted online by someone they did not know in a way that made them feel scared or uncomfortable are substantially more likely to engage in many reputation managing behaviors on social media. As will be discussed further in Part 4 of this report, 17% online teens say they have been contacted online by someone they did not know in a way that made them feel scared or uncomfortable.
Three in four (74%) teen social media users have deleted people from their network or friends’ list. In addition, nearly six in ten teen social media users (58%) have blocked people on these sites. Teen social media users who have experienced unwanted or uncomfortable contact are also more likely than those who have not to report unfriending (89% vs. In addition, one in four (26%) teen social media users say that they post fake information—such as a fake name, age or location—to help protect their privacy. Teens with larger friend networks also tend to be more active when it comes to managing and maintaining their online personas.46 They are more likely than those with smaller networks to block other users, to delete people from their friend network entirely, to untag photos of themselves, and to delete comments others have made on their profile.
Interestingly, some of these reputation management activities exhibit spikes at different points in the network size spectrum. More than half of internet-using teens have decided not to post content online over reputation concerns.
Social media platforms are by no means the sole site of personal information sharing online, and there are many places where teens make daily decisions about what to share and who to share it with. The oldest youth—online teens ages 16 and 17—are more likely than younger teens to say that they’ve decided not to post content online over concerns about how it will reflect on them; 67% of online teens ages 16-17 say they have withheld content, compared with 52% of 14-15 year-olds. Rural youth are more likely (67%) than urban youth (51%) to say that they have refrained from posting something over reputational concerns. In our online focus groups, teens told us that often they limit what they post due to previous experiences and regrets. Some teens find themselves in the role of policing or advising their friends when they post sensitive or personal information online. Much of teen social media behavior is driven by the ways in which they socialize with peers online. Female (age 17): “I mean, I kind of feel like it [adult scrutiny] does teach you to watch what you post at the same time. Some focus group participants discussed the importance of creating a good presentation of themselves online in order to maintain positive in-person relationships with adults.
Male (age 18): “Yeah, I have some teachers who have connections that you might want to use in the future, so I feel like you always have an image to uphold. Most focus group participants are keenly aware that their online content is visible to the adults in their lives.
Other worries for teens stem from adults seeing a different side of them than what they project, which teens feel adults would take out of context and not be able to be able to appropriately interpret. The pressures of college admission and employment, in particular, seem to have a big influence on online behavior. Male (age 16): “Because, well, in an interview you can maybe lie to a person like a boss but you couldn’t really lie on Facebook because on Facebook you post – everything you post it stays there.
Others actively hide things, or employ complicated strategies for selectively displaying content – especially maintaining multiple accounts. The vast majority of teen Facebook users say that their parents and other adults see the same content and updates that all of their friends see, suggesting that having multiple Facebook accounts is not a common practice.
The net effect of teens protecting the reputations they have with adults may still protect teens’ overall reputation: if a teen’s tactics are successful at not raising objections from his or her parents, the tactics may well also be effective at preventing other potentially judgmental adults from seeing parts of the teen’s private life and discriminating against him or her based on it. The activities in this section were asked as part of a battery of questions about social networking sites.

Teens share a wide range of information about themselves on social media sites; indeed the sites themselves are designed to encourage the sharing of information and the expansion of networks. Since 2006, the act of sharing certain kinds of personal information on social media profiles19 has become much more common.  For the five different types of personal information that we measured in both 2006 and 201220, each was significantly more likely to be shared by teen social media users in our most recent survey. Generally speaking, older teens (those 14-17), are more likely to share certain types of information online than younger teens, ages 12-13.  Older teens more frequently share a photo of themselves, their school name, their relationship status, and their cell phone number.
What follows next is a more detailed analysis of who shares what information on social networking sites.
More than nine-in-ten (92%) teens who use social networking sites or Twitter share their real name on the profile they use most often.22 Given that Facebook is now the dominant platform for teens, and a first and last name is required when creating an account, this is undoubtedly driving the nearly universal trend among teen social media users to say they post their real name to the profile they use most often. Regardless of age or gender, teen social media users are equally likely to say that they post their real name to their profile. Nearly all teens post photos of themselves to their online profile, a feature that is integral to the design and functioning of the most popular social network sites.
Among teen social media users, 91% say that they have posted a photo of themselves on the profile or account they use most often, up from 79% in 2006. Older teens ages 14-17 are more likely than younger teens ages 12-13 to say that they include a photo of themselves on their profile (94% vs. Seven in ten (71%) social media-using teens say they have posted their school name to the profile they use most often, compared with just 49% who reported doing so in 2006. Similarly, 71% of social media-using teens say they post the city or town where they live to their profile, up from 61% in 2006. The lack of variation by gender, age, or any other key demographic variables for many of these activities suggests a pattern of disclosure that maps to the design of the interface and the sites’ policies which teens encounter when creating their accounts. Sharing a relationship status is slightly less common, although it is still posted by a majority of social networking teens. The practice of posting an email address has also become more common; 53% of teen social media users now report posting that information to their profile, while just 29% reported doing so in 2006. One in four social media-using teens (24%) post videos of themselves to the profile they use most often. Cell phone numbers, which were very rarely included on teen profiles in 2006 (only 2% of teens posted them at that time), are now shared by 20% of teen social media users. While boys and girls generally share personal information on social media profiles at the same rates, cell phone numbers are the sole exception.  Boys are significantly more likely to share their numbers than girls (26% vs. 16% of teen social media users have set up their profile to automatically include their location in posts. Beyond basic profile information, some teens choose to enable updates that automatically include their location when they post; some 16% of teen social media users say they have done this. Teens in our online focus groups were for the most part quite wary of sharing their location, with some teens citing concerns over crime “I never share my location because strange people could access that info and find out where you are or if you are not home use it to find a time to rob your house,” wrote a middle school aged boy. Other teens don’t mind having their location broadcast to others—particularly when they want to send signals and information to friends and parents.


Among focus group participants, Facebook was the social media site with the greatest number of users, and thus the main site to consider for social media practices.
Teens don’t think of their Facebook use in terms of information sharing, friending or privacy: for them, what is most important about Facebook is how it is a major center of teenage social interactions, both with the positives of friendship and social support and the negatives of drama and social expectations. Female (age 15): “I think something that really changed for me in high school with Facebook is Facebook is really about popularity. For many, Facebook is an extension of offline social interactions, although the online interactions take on forms specific to the features of Facebook. Profile pictures are particularly critical, with some focus group participants participating in elaborate rituals to maximize the visibility in others’ newsfeeds and hence number of “likes” of their profile picture.
Even as teens engage in these practices, they may perceive them as inauthentic and be embarrassed by their participation.
Male (age 16): “It depends how deeply they take what they find on the Internet or what they find on your Facebook. When trying to regulate the photos of themselves posted by others, focus group participants cited a variety of strategies for communicating about unwanted content. Female (age 14): “Somebody recently, they went back on one of my first [Facebook] profile pictures from when I was in sixth grade. Male (age 17): “Yeah, it [having my boss as a Facebook friend] actually does [influence what I post], because when you’re working you don’t want your boss to find out that you’re drinking.
Overall, a picture emerges where Facebook is a reproduction, reflection, and extension of offline dynamics.
Gradations of privacy and publicity arise from the numerous choices that teens make as they construct their networks. Older teens tend to be Facebook friends with a larger variety of people, while younger teens are less likely to friend certain groups, including those they have never met in person. Teens, like other Facebook users, have a variety of different kinds of people in their online social networks, and how teens construct those networks has implications for who can see the material they share in those digital social spaces.
Older teens are more likely than younger ones to have created broader friend networks on Facebook. Teens with parents with lower levels of education (a high school diploma or less) are more likely than teens with college educated parents to be friends on Facebook with their siblings (81% vs. Many teens say they must “know” someone before they will accept a Facebook friend request from them, but teens expressed different thresholds for friending. Parents are another challenging group for teens to manage on Facebook, and as such, youth have a number of different strategies. Some teens cope with managing their different Facebook constituencies by having two different profiles. Teens and adults have a variety of ways to make available or limit access to their personal information online.
Three in ten (30%) Facebook-using teens have checked their Facebook privacy settings in the last seven days and close to another third (31%) have checked their privacy settings in the last month.  A smaller percentage (17%) checked their Facebook privacy settings in the last year.
Boys are slightly more likely than girls to say that they never check their settings (8% vs. In findings virtually unchanged from when we first asked a similar question in 2011, 60% of teens ages 12-17 who use Facebook say they have their profile set to private, so that only their friends can see it. Girls are substantially more likely to have a private profile than boys, while boys are more likely than girls to have a completely public profile. White teen Facebook users are just as likely as African-American teens to have public profiles. Beyond the general privacy settings on their profile, Facebook users can place further limits on who (within their network of friends) can see the information and updates they post. This one-size-fits-all approach extends to parents; only 5% of teen Facebook users say they limit what their parents can see.
The vast majority of teen Facebook users (85%) say that their parents see the same content and updates that all of their other friends see. In our online focus groups, teens were divided in their attitudes towards having their parents as Facebook friends and in the actions they did (or did not) take to limit their parents’ access to their postings.
Other teens observe that there are times when there is information that is fine for parents to know, but not friends. While there are many similarities in use of social media across platforms, each platform also has its own affordances that shape how youth use the technology and the types of privacy settings that are available to them.
Teens who have Twitter accounts generally report that their accounts are public; 64% of teen Twitter users say that their tweets are public, while 24% say their tweets are private. Teens in our online focus groups reported a variety of practices around frequency of use and privacy on Twitter. Teens interviewed in focus groups overwhelmingly expressed confidence in their ability to manage and regulate their privacy online and feel their online disclosure of personal information is under control. Among those who did discuss their engagement with privacy settings, there was a great deal of variation.
Female (age 18): “Yeah but at the same time sometimes the privacy settings can be annoying.
Female (age 18): “I think it is common knowledge that our parents tell us not to post anything because then someone else can look at it. In other cases, there was direct parental regulation, often through participants being friends with their parent(s) on Facebook. In many cases, focus group participants understood, sympathized with, and respected their parents’ concerns.
Male (age 16): “Well, I think kids, at least compared to my parents, me and my friends know how to change the privacy settings a lot better than them. Female (age 13): “At first, when I got a Facebook, I was worried about my privacy settings, and my parents were too. Male (age 13): “Well, I think we probably do not care quite as much as our parents in general about our privacy. As mentioned earlier, what is most important to teens about social media sites is socializing with peers and those with shared interests. The online focus group data also sheds light on teens’ experiences of the differences between Facebook and Twitter.
In order to fully understand the implications of the content that teens share on social media, it is vital to understand the size and composition of their online social networks.  Sharing information about yourself with a select group of 100 in-person friends is very different from sharing the same information with 1000 people including adults and peers of varying degrees of closeness and real-world contact.
Teen Facebook users have an average (mean number) of 425.4 friends, with the typical (median) teen Facebook user having 300 friends. In addition to being older and more heavily female, teens with larger Facebook networks also tend to have a greater diversity of people in their friend networks and to share a wider array of information on their profile. Teens with a large number of Facebook friends exhibit social networking site usage patterns that differ sharply from those of teens with smaller friend networks, starting with the fact that these teens spend more time using social networking sites in general. In addition to using social networking sites of any kind with greater frequency than teens with relatively small friend networks, teens with a larger number of Facebook friends also tend to maintain profiles on a wider range of platforms outside of Facebook itself. This is especially true for Twitter use, as teens with more than 600 Facebook friends are more than three times as likely to also have a Twitter account as are those with 150 or fewer Facebook friends. Almost all teen Facebook users (regardless of whether they have a small or large number of friends) are friends with their schoolmates and extended family members. On the other hand, teens with the largest friend networks are actually less likely to be friends with their parents on Facebook when compared with those with the smallest networks—although a majority of teens are friends with their parents on Facebook across all network size groupings. Teens with larger friend networks tend to share a wider variety of personal information on their Facebook profile. Along with expanding their networks to include a greater variety of friends, teens with larger friend networks also tend to share a wider variety of personal information on their Facebook profile.
Most teen social media users say they aren’t very concerned about third-party access to their data. Social media sites are often designed to encourage sharing of information—both to keep users engaged and returning to find new content and also to gather more information to share with advertisers for better ad targeting and other forms of data mining.
Overall, 40% of teen social media users say they are “very” or “somewhat” concerned that some of the information they share on social networking sites might be accessed by third parties like advertisers or businesses without their knowledge. Teens from lower income families are more likely to express strong views about third party access to data than teens living in higher income households. As might be expected, teens who have public Facebook profiles are more likely to say they are not concerned about third parties accessing their personal information online, when compared with teens who have more locked down Facebook profiles. Teen Twitter users are more likely than those who do not use Twitter to express at least some level of concern about third party access to their data; 49% of teen Twitter users say they are “somewhat” or “very” concerned about third party access, compared with just 37% of teens who do not use Twitter. Looking at network size, there are no clear increases or decreases in concern level relative to the number of friends a teen has in his or her Facebook network.
Insights from our online focus groups suggest that some teens do not have a good sense of whether or not the information they share on a social media site is being used by third parties.
When asked whether they thought Facebook gives anyone else access to the information they share,41 one middle schooler wrote: “Anyone who isn’t friends with me cannot see anything about my profile except my name and gender. Other teens were more knowledgeable about information sharing with third parties, and were often philosophical about the reasons why that information might be shared.
Advertisements and online tracking by companies does not appear to be a major concern for most focus group participants, although a few find them annoying, and others see these company practices as inevitable. Some teens even enjoy the benefits of “liking” certain companies and receiving advertisements, or allowing apps to access private information to use certain features. Without having experienced negative consequences or seeing what those negative consequences might be, teens do not seem to be overly concerned about advertisers and third parties having access to their information.
81% of parents are concerned about how much information advertisers can learn about their child’s online behavior.
Even as teens report a relatively modest level of concern about third parties such as advertisers or businesses accessing the personal information they post online, parents show much greater levels of concern about advertisers accessing information about their child. The question wording does not specify where on a teens’ profile or account a particular type of content is posted – it could be posted to a prominent part of a profile that is constantly visible or accessible, or it could be posted as a status, comment or tweet that is not as readily accessible.

Some of the findings seem in line with what you would probably guess, but others were surprising.
And in a strange twist, despite being somewhat economically disadvantaged, 72% of adults with annual household incomes below $30,000 use social networks, more than those with higher wages. Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe.
Children of college-educated parents are more likely to have cleaned up something posted in the past than youth whose parents have a high school diploma (66% vs. Older girls ages 14 to 17 are more likely to delete comments on their profile than boys of the same age. Girls are more likely than boys to untag themselves from photos posted on social media, with 58% of girls reporting engaging in this behavior compared with a third (33%) of boys. Younger boys are more likely to report regretting content they posted than older boys (30% vs. Teens who have experienced unwanted or uncomfortable contact are more likely to delete comments on their profile (69% vs. However, they typically maintain large networks of friends on sites like Facebook, and few take steps to limit what certain friends and parents can see.
Network pruning is most common among girls; 82% of teen girls who are social media users delete friends from their network, compared with 66% of boys who do so. Teen girls are once again more likely than boys who are social media users to say that they have blocked someone on the sites they use (67% vs.
They are also substantially more likely to automatically include their location in updates and share inside jokes or coded messages with others.
For example, blocking people, deleting comments, and automatically including one’s location sees a dramatic increase at around 600 Facebook friends. Many teens have decided not to post something online out of concern that it will reflect poorly on them later. In addition, white and African-American youth are more likely to decide not to post something over reputational concerns when compared with Hispanic youth.48 Just about two thirds of white and African-American youth (61% and 63% respectively) say they have decided not to share some content online, while 45% of Hispanic youth say the same. However, teens have a sense of the watchful and potentially judgmental eye of adults, and this is a key influencer of the choices they make online. Obviously, it is a little invading of the privacy, but I feel like it has taught me to watch what I post. He can see anything that we do, basically, because he’s part of the police department. Thus, many focus group participants employ a variety of strategies to regulate their content, knowing that adults may be watching. But I feel like they [college admissions officers] should just take into consideration that it’s just kids being kids.
So you can’t really say I didn’t post this or I didn’t post that because it’s still on the profile. Still, focus groups show that in many cases, the effect of adults policing their teens’ social media use is indeed that teens are inspired to go to great lengths to maintain their reputation. It conducts public opinion polling, demographic research, media content analysis and other empirical social science research.

While boys and girls generally share personal information on social media profiles at the same rates, cell phone numbers are the sole exception.  Boys are significantly more likely to share their cell phone numbers than girls, a difference that is driven by older boys. Fake accounts with fake names can still be created on Facebook, but the practice is explicitly forbidden in Facebook’s Terms of Service.23 However, Twitter and some other social network sites have no such restrictions. However, white teens who are social media users are more likely than African-American teens to say that they post their real name to their profile (95% vs.


Older teens are more likely than younger teens to publish their school name on their profile (76% vs. One’s location is another basic piece of information that is asked of a user during the process of signing up for an account on Facebook. Six-in-ten (62%) share a relationship status.28 Older teen social media users are more likely than younger teens to disclose their relationship status (66% vs. Teen social media users are equally likely to say that they post their email address to their profile, regardless of age or gender. Teens whose parents have higher levels of education and income are somewhat more likely than teens whose parents have lower levels of educational attainment or annual incomes to say they share videos of themselves on the social media profile they use most often—a finding that may be influenced by the tech assets of the family.
This increase is likely influenced by a concurrent rise in cell phone ownership among teens. Boys and girls and teens of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds are equally likely to say that they have set up their profile to include their location when they post. Even those focus group participants claiming they did not have a Facebook account made comments indicating familiarity with the site. Thinking about social media use in terms of reputation management is closer to the teen experience. As one focus group participant described it, when pictures are posted, at first individuals do not tag themselves. Another is potential consequences from authority, which for older focus group participants often includes parents, other family members, college admissions officers and employers. While “drama” is the result of normal teenage dynamics rather than anything specific to Facebook, teens are sometimes resentful toward Facebook from this negative association.
In addition to choosing privacy settings, they choose (and sometimes even feel pressure to add) different people to their friend network. Older teens are more likely to be friends with kids who go to different schools (92% compared with 82% of Facebook-using teens 12-13), to be friends with people they have never met in person (36% vs. In our online focus groups, we asked middle and high school students about who was in their online social network and how they decided who to friend (or not). Within Facebook, the dominant social network among American youth, they can choose which people to friend and when to unfriend. About 6% said they checked them last when they created their profile and another 5% said they have never checked their Facebook privacy settings. Another 25% have a partially private profile, set so that friends of their friends can see what they post.
For private profiles, 70% of girls report Facebook profiles set to be visible to friends only, while 50% of boys say the same. However, white teen Facebook users are more likely than African-American teens to have at least partially private Facebook profiles—29% of white youth, compared with 16% of African-American youth have profiles visible to friends of friends.33 Youth who live in urban areas are more likely than suburban dwellers (67% vs. While 41% of Facebook users ages 12-13 say it’s not difficult at all to manage their privacy controls, 61% of users ages 14-17 report that same level of confidence. For most teen Facebook users, all friends see the same information and updates on their profile. However, among teens who have a Facebook account, only 18% say that they limit what certain friends can see on their profile. Just 5% say that they limit what their parents can see, while 9% volunteered that their parents do not use Facebook. As noted in Part 1, Facebook is still the most popular social networking platform for American teens, but use of Twitter has grown rapidly in the last year. It is also notable that 12% of teens with Twitter accounts say that they “don’t know” if their tweets are public or private. However, much of this comes through regulating what content they post and not necessarily through their use of privacy settings, which some participants saw as irrelevant. You will set it to something and then it will switch and it’s like – no, I want it private. Much of this seemed to result in participants self-censoring, although we found one case of punishment for online actions.
This girl posted a really, really provocative picture [on Facebook] and I called her a not very nice word [in the comments].
Sometimes focus group participants were even more worried than their parents about their online privacy. But the problem is, a lot of my friends and me, including me, sometimes post things that probably will not be the best to see in the future, or have a college or a boss see. As noted above, Twitter networks tend to be substantially more compact by comparison—teen Twitter users have an average of 171.5 followers, with the typical (median) teen user having 79 followers on Twitter. Yet even as they share more information with a wider range of people, they are also more actively engaged in maintaining their online profile or persona. Some 65% of teens with more than 600 friends on Facebook say that they visit social networking sites several times a day. Indeed, some 18% of teens with more than 600 friends on Facebook say that Twitter is the profile they use most often (although some 73% of these teens say that Facebook is their most-used social networking profile). Regardless of network size, teen Facebook users are equally likely to say they have siblings as friends in their networks.
Teen Facebook users in the largest network size quartile (those with more than 600 friends in their network) are more likely to be friends on Facebook with peers who don’t attend their own school, with people they have never met in person (not including celebrities and other “public figures”), as well as with teachers or coaches. Teens with an above-average number of friends are more likely to include a photo of themselves, their school name, their relationship status, and their cell phone number on their profile compared to teens with a below-average number of friends in their network.
There is an ongoing debate over these practices—over how much users are aware that their information is being shared, whether minors should be the subject of data collection that is ultimately shared with and sold to third parties, and whether users appreciate that targeted ads and other forms of data collection allow them free access to certain websites and services. Teens living in lower income households (those with parents earning less than $50,000 annually in household income) are more likely than those living in higher-earning families (earning $50,000 or more per year) to say that they are very concerned (12% vs. Among teens with public profiles, 41% are “not at all concerned” about third party access to their information, compared with 13% of teens with partially private profiles and 20% of teens with private profiles who are not at all concerned about third parties.40 Teens with partially private profiles are more likely to say they are “not too concerned” or “somewhat concerned” about third party access than teens with more public Facebook profiles. If they see that they can get benefits from sharing information, they are often willing to do so. A distant second was LinkedIn with 20%, with Twitter coming in third at 16%, and Tumblr falling dead last at 6%.
Six in ten (60%) older girls have deleted comments on their profiles, while 48% of boys ages 14 to 17 have done the same. Teens with Twitter accounts are more likely than non-Twitter users to untag photos (59% vs. Urban youth are also more likely to have deleted a profile when compared with suburban teens; 38% of urban teens have deactivated or deleted a profile or account, compared with 27% of suburban youth.
Similarly, 52% of teens who are very or somewhat concerned about third parties accessing their data without their knowledge have untagged themselves in photos, while 41% of less concerned teens say the same. The practice of friending, unfriending, and blocking serve as yet another set of essential privacy management techniques for controlling who sees what and when. Girls and boys are equally likely to post inside jokes and coded messages, as are teens across all socioeconomic groups.
However, African-American teens who use social media are more likely than white teens to say that they post fake information to their profiles (39% vs. The act of sharing inside jokes or coded messages becomes more common among those with more than 150 friends, and untagging photos follows a similar pattern. More than half of online teens (57%) say they have decided not to post something online because they were concerned it would reflect badly on them in the future.47 Teen social media users are more likely than other online teens who do not use social media to say they have refrained from sharing content due to the future impact it might have on their reputation (61% vs.
There is a common attitude among focus group participants that as soon as something is posted online, there is a risk that it is no longer private. Certainly, many teens fear negative judgments and sometimes repercussions from adults in positions of authority. Colleges might actually see my pictures and I have pictures like with my fingers up, my middle fingers up.
Teens have a ‘reputation’ with their parents just as much as with the outside world, and they are careful to protect it because losing this reputation can have immediate negative consequences (whether mere embarrassment or getting in trouble).

As the GTHA continues to grow, the government is committed to enhancing and expanding the Greenbelt to protect this resource, helping to ensure that Ontario continues to grow fresh food to be served at tables across the province and around the world. MySpace to Facebook), dramatic changes in the devices teens use to connect to their networks, as well as near-constant changes to the interfaces teens engage with have all undoubtedly had some influence on the likelihood that teens will post certain kinds of information to their profile. Girls and boys are equally likely to include a photo of themselves, and there are no significant variations by race or ethnicity. Older teens, who have higher cell phone ownership when compared with younger teens, are also more likely to post their cell number to their social media profile (23% vs. This gap is notable, given that older boys and older girls have the same rate of cell phone ownership (83% vs.
Teens who have Twitter accounts are more likely than non-Twitter users to say they enable location updates (26% vs. Many said their friends were a primary motivation for creating a Facebook account, while others said they created one to find out about events for school or extracurricular activities through Facebook.
Only when some time has elapsed, and the picture has already accumulated some “likes”, will a user tag themselves or friends.
I email a lot of people and it is just like I do not really understand – that is not necessary.
Leaving the site altogether is viewed by some as an effective way of distancing oneself from the drama.
The size and composition of an individual’s friend network has great bearing on how private a “friends only” setting can be on a social media site. They can choose to use default privacy settings or finely tune the privacy controls to limit who can see certain parts of their profile as well as restrict who can view individual posts.
And 12% said they could not remember or do not know the last time they checked their privacy settings.
3%) Younger teens are also slightly more likely to say that they only checked their settings when establishing their profile (8% vs.
On the flip side, 20% of boys say their profiles are public, while just 8% of girls report completely open Facebook profiles. Boys and girls report similar levels of confidence in managing the privacy controls on their Facebook profile. These teens shape what information is shared with their parents by limiting parental access to certain content. The number of teen Twitter account owners is too small to report significant differences in privacy settings across various racial and socioeconomic groups. There were mixed opinions about explicit regulation, with some being appreciative, and others being resentful.
But sympathizing with parental concerns did not necessarily translate into agreeing with them.
They give us that permission – they trust that we are not going to [post something bad] – it’s on us pretty much. While teens are influenced by parents and other adults to think about social media use in terms of information sharing and privacy, they do not always prioritize that perspective because it doesn’t account for and allow normal socializing. By comparison, just one quarter (27%) of teens with 150 or fewer Facebook friends visit social networking sites with similar frequency.
With the exception of those with the smallest friend networks, most teens are also equally likely to be friends with public figures such as celebrities, musicians or athletes. Most strikingly, teens with more than 600 Facebook friends are nearly twice as likely as the next quartile to have teachers or coaches, or other people they haven’t met in person in their friend networks. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) even as it is thought of today as a law built to safeguard children’s physical well-being, began as an attempt to protect children under 13 from having their personal information collected for business purposes without their parent’s permission. Younger teen social media users ages 12-13 are considerably more likely than older teens (14-17) to say that they are “very concerned” about third party access to the information they share (17% vs.
Despite having more distractions, people living in cities have the most social media activity, at 70% of the population. Teens with Twitter accounts are more likely than non-Twitter users to delete comments (63% vs.
And 38% of concerned teens have deleted or deactivated a profile or account, compared with 25% of less concerned or unconcerned teens.
41%) and to say that they have posted photos or content that they later regretted sharing (30% vs. Teens of all ages and socioeconomic groups are equally likely to say that they block other people on social media sites. After the grace period has ended, you are required to start making your monthly payments (of principal plus interest) on your outstanding full-time OSAP loans. The technological landscape has changed radically over the last six years, and many of these information sharing practices map to the evolution of the platforms that teens use. White teen social media users are more likely than African-American teens to share their relationship status (65% vs.
Retroactively, they can change the settings for content they have posted in the past or delete material from their timeline altogether.
This behavior is consistent, regardless of the general privacy settings on a teen’s profile.
However, while boys and girls are equally likely to say their accounts are public, boys are significantly more likely than girls to say that they don’t know (21% of boys who have Twitter accounts report this, compared with 5% of girls). Some participants were confident they were more competent at regulating their content than their parents or other adults give them credit for. When teens do engage with privacy, it becomes a matter not just of engaging with privacy but also the world of adult expectations and responsibilities that is telling them the concept is important.
However, teens living in lower income households are also more likely than those living in higher-income families to say they are “not at all” concerned about third parties accessing their personal information (29% vs. And also, they already know what my computer is, what web browser I’m using, and my IP, just by going to the website.

The reader is, however, referred to the Corporations Act and the Regulations to examine those sections not set out here. Certain pieces of information are required at signup while others are actively solicited through the interface design. Among teen Facebook users, most restrict access to their profile in some way, but few place further limits on who can see the material they post.
Boys and girls are also equally unlikely to restrict what certain friends can see on their profiles, and there are no significant differences between younger teens ages 12-13 and older teens ages 14-17. I don’t want people who aren’t my friends to still see my things and then it won’t give you the option, it will give you, public, nobody, or friends of friends.
Dealing with privacy, then, is more than just about privacy; it is about the process of being socialized into adult concerns and, ultimately, thereby becoming an adult. In 2006 Clodhoppers was sold to Brookside Foods, a leading Canadian chocolate manufacturer. At the same time, the adults in teens’ lives have also become much more likely to be social media users, further normalizing many of these sharing behaviors. 23%) to be friends with coaches or teachers, the only category of Facebook friends where boys and girls differ.  African-American youth are nearly twice as likely as whites to be Facebook friends with celebrities, athletes or musicians (48% vs.

At the time, almost all of these teen social media users (93%) said they had a Facebook account, but some respondents could have been reporting settings for other platforms. For the purposes of this study, we have only asked respondents about their Twitter followers.
Do you think Facebook gives anyone else access to the information you share?” and “Given that Facebook is a free service, do you think it would be fair if they gave advertisers or other companies access to some of your profile information –in order to show you certain kinds of ads or help businesses know better what you like?” ↩Other surveys that look at the behaviors and attitudes of young adults have suggested that young adults may expect greater protections than current privacy laws afford.
