In this episode of Kids Talk Media you’ll meet Rachel and Lyla, two middle school age girls on the brink of new experiences, new responsibilities and new struggles with media. They talk about their first Instagram accounts, “snap streaks” on Snapchat, and how TikTok fits into their lives.
Both girls are mindful of their privacy online even though they haven’t adjusted any of their privacy settings. Do they really understand all the ways in which their information can be tracked on social media? The peer pressure to have a social media presence is pretty strong, but the option to not be online isn’t realistic for them. I hope you enjoy this honest conversation.
