These reports from Common Sense Media always make for an interesting read.   -  This is worth a look at and thinking about how it might apply to the young people we work with. 

I am surprised that social media makes teens feel less lonely and less depressed.  Maybe not the ones I work with!  But we really need to take into account the differences between students with high and low social and emotional well being.

I just watched the HBO Documentary on an aspect of social media, "Tinder and the Dawn of the 'Dating Apocalypse'." This is the social media that adolescent users aspire to once they move away from home and their parents' watchful eyes.

These reports are for adults only, as this is a subject of professional development.

A nice read  @isobel_williams hanks for the share. And a timely reminder of the impact of using an LMS transformatively thus creating a shared digital language to help prevent or deal with issues that may arise, as well as building the students digital citizenship skills.
