  • teenagers would love to socialize face-to-face with their friends. But adult society won’t let them. “Teens aren’t addicted to social media. They’re addicted to each other,” Boyd says. “They’re not allowed to hang out the way you and I did, so they’ve moved it online.”

  •  
    What should be a school leader's response when a student uses social media in an inappropriate manner? This editorial .. makes the usual call for more rules and education about improper use of social media. But was this event a "social media problem" or was it "a behavioral or crime problem?" I think the answer to that question is at the heart of how a school leader should respond to a student's misuse of social media.
