This book is about social lives of networked teens, social media and how it affects them on a daily basis, its seems fashion, smart phones are all the rage at the moment, only phones are not being used for text messaging and calling but now for sending out photos  and videos, sharing with friends all over the internet and media sites such as Facebook,Twitter, using Apps and Myspace, they say if your not on Myspace you dont exist. It seems teens have an avid fascination with all social media sites, not realising they can be harmful especially if you have had some photos take which you would rather not share. Nowadays teens think they can do anything online without problems ensuing but you only have look at the number of teens who have committed suicide because of internet trolls.
