What is new about how teenagers communicate through services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? Do social media affect the quality of teens' lives? In this eye-opening book, youth culture and technology expert danah boyd uncovers some of the major myths regarding teens' use of social media. She explores tropes about identity, privacy, safety, danger, and bullying. Ultimately, boyd argues that society fails young people when paternalism and protectionism hinder teenagers' ability to become informed, thoughtful, and engaged citizens through their online interactions. Yet despite an environment of rampant fear-mongering, boyd finds that teens often find ways to engage and to develop a sense of identity.

Boyd's conclusions are essential reading not only for parents, teachers, and others who work with teens but also for anyone interested in the impact of emerging technologies on society, culture, and commerce in years to come. Offering insights gleaned from more than a decade of original fieldwork interviewing teenagers across the United States, boyd concludes reassuringly that the kids are all right. At the same time, she acknowledges that coming to terms with life in a networked era is not easy or obvious. In a technologically mediated world, life is bound to be complicated.

Salim and Kayal #Watty's 2016 # YourStoryIndia #ProjectWomanUp

This is the story of Salim and Kayal. They are from Tamil Nadu, India and they meet in Delhi. This is a romance story but I have tried to talk about our culture, people, politics, food and traditions through this story. Enjoy how two people who fall in love with each other, try to balance their principles, family and love in their lives. This is not a fairy tale of a blushing girl and a Prince Charming. I have tried to create a story as realistic as possible but at the same time I have made sure that my readers would smile at the end of every chapter. LOVE DOES EXIST. The main character is a Muslim. But, you can enjoy this book even if you are not a Muslim. I have attached Glossary and reference as the second last chapter. So, if you have any doubts about the terms used, please check it out. Best Rank till now - Number 8 in Spiritual on 19th of August, 2016Content warning - Slightly mature content in few chapters. (Don't worry I will warn you at the beginning of the chapter). No Graphic Description. P.S. If you are expecting a South Indian story of forced marriage to a cousin, then sorry my book is not for you. My characters are thinking, matured and independent adults.If you have a fair knowledge about Indian Geography, Tamil Nadu and Politics directly skip to fourth chapter from where both the main characters meet.
