PA046: Social Networking in Adolescence: Reports from LGBT and non-LGBT Youth

Friday, February 21, 2014 4:00 PM–4:50 PM


Youth are spending more time online than ever before, but do lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth spend more time online than non-LGBT peers, as they reach out to other LGBT peers? This session will present the results of a national survey examining youth online activities, from both LGBT and non-LGBT respondents. Participants will learn how all youth can safely navigate online experiences, and the cautionary tales they provide about their experiences.
