A Teenager Talks about Social Media

Backchannel is a new Medium publication edited by technology journalist Steven Levy, with the strapline; “Mining the tech world for lively and meaningful tales and analysis’.

Over the last few weeks they have published two very readable and revealing articles by 19 year old American student Andrew Watts, offering a teenager’s view of all the social media channels.

Firstly ‘A Teenager’s View on Social Media, Written by an actual teen’, offers a set of interesting and concise observations. Buoyed up by success and positive feedback, he wrote, ‘What Teens Really Think about YouTube, Google+, Reddit and Other Social Media’, which covers all the platforms he missed out the first time around.
