It's nearly impossible for most of us to imagine what our lives would be like without social media. However, today's teens unarguably eclipse their elders in the reliance on and adept, intuitive use of a whole range of social media platforms. Savvy though they may be, teens are still plagued by the same specters that haunt all social media users, such as trolls and bullies, privacy issues, and fake news. Arm readers with the knowledge, tools, and critical perspective they need to navigate the tricky world of social media and educate others about how to do so in an informed, intelligent way.
