Hi, I'm Riccardo

Young People and SNSs

How do young people use social network sites?

In an Internet reality populated by real virtualities, in which young people is completely absorbed in everyday life too, it is becoming more and more fundamental to discuss and understand how young people (13-20) use these new technologies and how much understand of their possible dangers.

I ideated a small questionnaire to gather some data about what personal informations are usually provided to social network sites by young people and how they interact with this huge amount of data.

The questionnaire was aired on October 24, 2015 at the Linux Day 2015 of Varese in the ISISS Antonio Sant'Elia, an Italian high school, featuring the students as questionee.

I took the opportunity and displayed the results in a small presentation, where in the last slides I talked about Facebook T.O.S. (Terms of Service) as an example of social network site licence agreement.

You cand view the presentation fullscreen here or download it right here.

This, instead, is a chart of the results:
