Understanding the Problem

The Alarming Rise of Social Media Teen Harm

Social media’s ubiquity among teenagers has led to a surge in online harm incidents. According to a report by Pew Research, over 95% of teenagers aged 13 to 17 have access to smartphones, and 81% are active on social media platforms.

Unfortunately, these platforms aren’t always safe havens. Recent studies reveal that:

  1. Cyberbullying: A staggering 59% of U.S. teens have experienced some form of online harassment, as reported by the National Bullying Prevention Center.
  1. Mental Health Impact: The American Academy of Pediatrics warns that excessive social media use has been linked to increased rates of depression and anxiety among adolescents.
  1. Privacy Concerns: According to the Pew Research Center, over 60% of teens are worried about online privacy.
