Teenagers in the Era of Social Media

Serene Mastrianni and Carole Murko interviewed Meredith (17) and Caroline Finnerty (16) on their experience using texting and facebook to communicate with their friends.  Caroline shared with us how an ex-boyfriend used both to stalk and harass her after their break-up, and Meredith revealed her desire for privacy and her discreet use of the social media to manage her community of friends.  Their advice to parents – take away our phones at night so we can get some work down and get some rest!  We are going to have them back on an ongoing series about the younger generation and how they communicate.
