Facebook Use Falters Among Teens As Twitter Use Rises – Pew

Logo TheMainStreetAnalyst 8713679455_e0394e3f7e_zPeriodically, new research shows that use and consumer “engagement” with Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) has fallen and is usually replaced by time people spend on some alternative social media. If all the research were accurate, put together it would paint a picture of Facebook’s near-term demise. But Facebook, at least for the time being, is flourishing. Continue reading

Cyberbullying: Why You Should Talk To Your Kids – Infographic

There is a lot to do before your kid’s school year gets started. Hopefully, having a talk about cyberbullying will be on your to-do list.

According to a recent study by internet security company McAfee, kids are witnessing and sometimes engaging in cyber bullying. Almost one in four of teens claimed to be a target of cyberbullying and two-thirds of all teens have witnessed cruel behavior online, notes the Teen Internet Behavior study.

But only one in 10 parents are aware that their teens could be targets of cyberbullying.

Today’s schoolyard is Facebook, with slightly more than 92% of teens saying cruel behavior takes place on the site. Kids say bullies also make attacks on Twitter (23.8%), MySpace (17.7%) and Instant Messager (15.2%).

But teens will stand up to bullies online. When witnessing others being attacked, 40% of teens have told the person to stop, 20.7% have told an adult but 6.3% joined in. When being attacked themselves, 65.8% of teens responded to the attacker (with 35% responding in person).

Some of these online confrontations are hashed-out in the real world, where 4.5% of teens have been in a physical fight with an online bully, while about 15% avoided school.

Social Media Teens Seek Time Offline – Infographic

Today’s American teenagers are digital natives — connected to the Internet since youth. About 75% of 13 to 17-year-olds have personal social networking accounts. Since 2008, there has been a huge spike in teenage connectivity; only 59% of teens were on social media four years ago.

Despite seeing “racist, sexist and homophonic content” online, teenagers view social media networks positively. A national survey of 1,030 13-to-17-year-old individuals, conducted by Common Sense Media, reveals teenage perceptions of their digital lives.

More than 90% of teenagers are connected to the Internet. About 68% of teens regularly text, 51% visit Facebook and about 11% send or receive tweets every day. Many teens, 41%, admit they’re “addicted” to their devices.

Teens are aware of the dangers of excessive usage and the online potential of cruelty. However, most young adults say social media and technology positively affects their social and mental well-being. Social media helps teens communicate easily with friends. Surveyed teens also believe social networks help them to be more outgoing, confident and less depressed.

Surprisingly, a majority of survey participants say they prefer to chat face-to-face instead of text or tweet. One-third of teens actually desire time off from the Internet. Around 36% of teens who responded said they wish “they could go back to a time when there was no Facebook.”

Teens who feel the highest need to unplug aren’t connected to social networks or have had bad experiences online. A third of teens have encountered racist, sexist and homophobic content “often” online, according to Common Sense Media.

Teens And Video Sharing – Infographic

Teens love to share using online video more than you might think.

Nearly four in 10 teens who use the Internet take advantage of video chat using Skype and other apps. More than a quarter upload video to the web, and over 10% stream live video online for others to watch.

Forty-two percent of female teens video chat, and it’s also especially popular among people who use social networking sites.

But a recent episode involving the flirting app Skout highlights the dangers of over-sharing online. The app had to ban users under 18 after three separate cases of teenagers alleging that they were sexually assaulted by adults posing as teens on the platform.

Sure, a flirting app is a much different thing than simply uploading or streaming video to the web, but it does underscore that fact that online actions often aren’t as private or well-intentioned as we think they will be.

How can teens and their parents make sure they stay safe online? Keeping video access private whenever that’s an option and being sure not to reveal personal information are two major keys.

Streaming live video online for others to watch is more or less equally popular across income and parental education levels. When it comes to streaming video to consume content, however, it’s not a huge surprise that the more digitally savvy teens are the heaviest users. Teens who use Facebook and Twitter are more than twice as likely to stream video for entertainment than their peers who don’t use those sites. And streaming video for entertainment comes with its own set of virus and malware risks…Read More
