Do you know the 5 sites teens are on?

In December, Josh Miller interviewed his 10th grade sister about how she and her friends are using technology. His interview inspired Gerry Tan  to conduct a survey of teens and young adults about which services they used regularly. For teens, he found the top 5 sites were Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat and Twitter. The most used site for teens was Tumblr, even more popular than Facebook.

If your teen is on one of these sites or asking to use it, I have added articles about these sites to my Privacy Tools. If you do not want to click over, I included the same links below.

These articles explain how these services work as well as what kids and parents need to watch out for. Even if your kid is not asking about these sites – yet, it wouldn’t hurt to familiarize yourself with them. You may even find one you want to try.
