Boyd, Danah

9780300199000 - It's Complicated

Artikelomschrijving

What is new about how teenagers communicate through services such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? Do social media affect the quality of teens lives? In this eye-opening book, youth culture and technology expert Danah Boyd uncovers some of the major myths regarding teens use of social media. She explores tropes about identity, privacy, safety, danger and bullying. Ultimately, Boyd 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, Boyd finds that teens often find ways to engage and to develop a sense of identity. Boyds conclusions are essential reading not only for parents, teachers and others who work with teens, but also for anyone interested in the impact of emerging technologies on society, culture and commerce in years to come. Offering insights gleaned from more than a decade of original fieldwork interviewing teenagers across the United States, Boyd concludes reassuringly that the kids are all right.
