Teens, kindness and cruelty on social network sites How American teens navigate the new world of digital citizenship By Amanda LenhartMary MaddenAaron SmithKristen Purcell and Kathryn Zickuhr Social media use has become so pervasive in the lives of American teens that having a presence on a social network site is almost synonymous with being online.
We focused our attention in this research on social network sites because we wanted to understand the types of experiences teens are having there and how they are addressing negative behavior when they see it or experience it.
How often do they intervene to stand up for others? How often do they join in the mean behavior? We asked them about how they reacted to the experience and how they saw others react. We asked them about whether they have received and where they sought advice — both general advice about online safety and responsibility and specific advice on how to handle a witnessed experience of online cruelty on a social network site.
We further sought insight into more serious experiences that teens have in their lives, including bullying both on- and offline and the exchange of sexually charged digital images. The data discussed in this report are the result of a three-part, multi-modal study that included interviews with experts, seven focus groups with middle and high school students, and a nationally representative random-digit-dial telephone survey of teens and parents.
The survey was fielded April 19 through July 14,and was administered by landline and cell phone, in English and Spanish, to teens ages and a parent or guardian. Black and Latino families were oversampled. Their views are less positive than those of social media-using adults. Most American teens who use social media say that in their experience, people their age are mostly kind to one another on social network sites.
Adult social media users are just as likely to say that someone has been mean or cruel to them on social network sites in the last year. Among the social network site-using teens who have experienced cruelty or mean behavior on social network sites, there are no statistically significant differences by age, gender, race, or socio-economic status.
In other words, those who experience mean or cruel behavior are equally as likely to be older teens or younger teens; girls or boys; and youth from higher-income families or those from lower-income families.
More teens report positive personal outcomes than negative ones from interactions on social network sites: We asked social media-using teens about a series of experiences and interactions they may have had with other people on social network sites.
Still, a substantial number of teens report specific negative outcomes from experiences on social network sites: Half of bullied teens say they were bullied in multiple ways. Girls are much more likely than boys to report they had been bullied in various ways, except in-person bullying, which happened to boys and girls in roughly equal proportion.
How do people respond to mean behavior online? Teens say they most often see people ignoring cruelty, but a substantial number have witnessed others standing up for victims. Social media-using teens who have witnessed online cruelty say that people most often appear to ignore the situation, with a slightly smaller number of teens saying they also see others defending someone and telling others to stop their cruel behavior.
A majority of teens say their own reaction has been to ignore mean behavior when they see it on social media.
When asked about their own behavior, social media-using teens are most likely to say they ignore the behavior themselves, though others defend the victim and tell people to stop. Despite the high likelihood of teens seeing bystanders responding positively by standing up for or defending the attacked individual, they are also likely to witness others joining in the mean behavior.
