Teens' online social interactions are inextricably embedded in their overall social interactions and they use social media to augment, support, and act as extensions of their school and community networks. In this talk, sociology professor Dr. Dina Pinsky will share findings from her research on teens and social media based on her interviews with high school students and observations of their social media accounts. She will discuss the ways in which teens use social media to flirt with each other and explore the evolving culture of adolescents' digitally mediated courtship.
