reader_logoHave you wondered what your teens are sharing on social media or what their friends are sharing with them? The Pew Internet research center conducted a survey of over 800 teens to discuss how they share on social media, and the results might surprise you: teens practice far more “reputation management” online than expected.

This doesn’t mean they practice privacy; according to the study, they post extensive private information online.

  • 91% post a photo of themselves, up from 79% in 2006.
  • 71% post their school name, up from 49%.
  • 71% post the city or town where they live, up from 61%.
  • 53% post their email address, up from 29%.
  • 20% post their cell phone number, up from 2%.

Here’s more detail in a handy infographic produced from the study. Some parents might find this the start of an interesting discussion with their teens about their social media behavior.
