Youth Online - Where they may go, what they may be doing and how this may impact mental and behavioral health


This presentation will review how youth and young adults may use the Internet. We will review the different types of social tools that they use (online communities, games, applications) and the technical affordances of these platforms. We will then discuss what the technologies are used for and how people engage through them. Finally, we will assess the impact of this on the mental and behavioral health of the users, other types of outcomes including legal considerations.
