Kids Are Online ‘Almost Constantly’; So Is Porn

YouTube, Instagram, and Snapchat are the most popular platforms among teenagers, and fewer teens are on Facebook, says the latest Pew Internet & Technology report.

This shift in teens’ social media use is just one example of how the technology landscape for young people has evolved since the Center’s last survey of teens and technology use (2014-15).

Smartphone ownership has become a nearly ubiquitous element of teen life: 95% of teens now report they have a smartphone or access to one, and 45% of teens now say they are online on a near-constant basis.

Then add into the mix the fact that about 30% of Internet content is porn.

This is why Culture Reframed created the Program for Parents of Tweens. #StartTheConversation #ParentUp!
