Your Advice to Tweens/Teens about Social Media

Please take a few minutes to share your advice to teens (consider stories, experiences, questions, what not to do, things they should do) on how they should be using social media tools and digital technology as they go through middle school, high school, and get ready for college. I will be using your advice and experiences as I develop two guidebooks, one for Parents entitled: "Raising a Digitally Savvy Child" and one for Tweens/Teens entitled: "Managing Your Online Identity".

Carefully read the following and then respond to the question below in order to access the survey:

The purpose of this study is to provide individual experiences that will be utilized in books that I am writing. Participants will fill out the survey below. The initial survey will take about 10 minutes. There are no anticipated risks in this survey. There are no direct benefits to you for participating in this survey. Your experiences will help to illustrate examples as they apply to guidelines in the books. The information you provide in the survey will be handled confidentially. All surveys are completely anonymous. I do not ask for any identifying information from you.

Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary and you can withdraw from the survey at any time, either by closing out of the browser window, by not clicking submit at the end of the survey, or by not consenting below. Please note, due to the anonymous nature of the survey, I cannot match up an email request to withdraw from the survey once you have clicked "submit".

You will receive no payment for participating in this study.
