GIER Twilight Lecture Series: "I'm not a snitch": Teenage girls, friendship, and online safety

Teenage girls are some of the heaviest users of social media in this country. They use it extensively to communicate with friends both in and out of school. They share stories and experiences online, post messages and images, plan social events, and regularly check friends' postings. Friendship is a central feature of their social media experience. At the same time, these experiences place them at high risk for cyberbullying and emotional distress related to these experiences.
