This chapter examines how digital native youth understand and exercise privacy on social media, and offers ways for concerned groups (such as parents, educators and legislators) to change their perceptions of the risks and rewards of social media use. It identifies the challenges of the converged online lives many youth now lead, and discusses these challenges in relation to new opportunities created by social media. The chapter concludes with a discussion of ways to empower youth to make educated decisions regarding their own privacy in a converged and mediated world.
