One in four teens ages 13 -17 reported being online with their smart phones “almost constantly,” according to a new study, which also revealed more screen time among African-American and Hispanic youth than whites. But teens say the negative associations of looking at your phone aren’t all accurate. “I always hear from adults that teenagers need to stay off social media and our electronics. They tell us it’s not good for us… that it’s corrupting our lives. But there are a lot of good things about meeting people on social media.” Two local teenagers shared how phones and social media play a role in their lives, on Richmond Pulse.
