Author Nancy Jo Sales Warns About Social Media Culture

If your teen is always in front of a screen, you need to watch this interview.



Published:

Nancy Jo Sales, journalist and author of American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers, spent two years interviewing 13- to 19-year-old girls about their social media usage, cyberbullying, sexting and more. While you may think your teen just blindly loves being online, Sales says it's more complex than that. Teens are far more conflicted, and in ways addicted, than parents often realize. Watch as Sales sits down with  NJTV's One-on-One host Steve Adubato to discuss the dangers of social media culture, and how parents can combat them.
