Breaking News: Sometimes Teens Crave Face to Face time

Via Edudemic

Who knew? Well, actually I did. (I know- why don’t you toot that horn a little bit more, Lina?)

The following study by Common Sense Media confirms my very informal poll of the Grade 7s – that even the young people want to disconnect sometimes and wish their friends would disconnect too. Also of note is that more girls than boys love posting photos. Which reminds me of a conversation I was having with a friend the other day. She was telling me of her high school aged son who was complaining one day about all the selfies the girls post on social media (instagram, etc.) He seemed very confised about it, even going so far as to say that the boys tell the girls that selfies don’t make them look good (I am not going to comment on boys commenting on selfies right now- I will leave that for another post). But the girls keep doing it, flooding the bandwidths with bad photos of themselves.

Which is a weird phenomenon. Just saying.

Here is a nice infographic of the study:
