Connected Dot Com: Young People’s Navigation of Online Risks
Social and digital media have become an important way for young people to connect and to remain connected. The widespread use of information and communication technologies presents a number of new risks and opportunities.
Connected Dot Com: Young People’s Navigation of Online Risks, a study by the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention (CJCP) with support from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), explores young people’s use of social media in South Africa through focus group interviews conducted nationwide with close to 1800 children and young people.
At the event that marks the release of the study, key findings will be presented and followed by a panel discussion. The event is open to members of the public, the media, government, and civil society.
