Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
FindLaw columnist Eric Sinrod writes regularly in this section on legal developments surrounding technology and the Internet.
Today's teens certainly constitute the social media generation. And a recent study titled "Teens, Social Media and Privacy" by the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project sheds light on this phenomenon.
Significant findings include the following:
Furthermore, 92% post their real name, 84% post their interests, 82% post their birth date, 62% post their relationship status, and 24% post videos of themselves.
No doubt, teens are using social media prevalently and are revealing much about themselves and their lives for at least their friends and perhaps the world to see.
This train appears to be a locomotive that is well out of the station with no sign of slowdown any time soon. It will be interesting to see how the current teens of this generation will connect with each other as they become adults. And hopefully private data they post now will not come back to haunt them later.
