O livro de Danah Boyd, " It 's Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens ", teve grande impacto quando saiu.
O discurso sobre as tecnologias e os adolescentes nos media e numa grande parte da cultura que se vai produzindo está completamente desfasado da realidade.
” O que nos diz Boyd sobre os Nativos Digitais “ As sociologist Eszter Hargittai has quipped, many “ teens are more likely to be digital naives than digital natives. ” Eszter Hargittai “ Media narratives often suggest that kids today — those who have grown up with digital technology — are equipped with marvelous new superpowers.
he key to understanding how youth navigate social media is to step way from the headlines—both good and bad—and dive into the more nuanced realities of young people. ” E sobre a Identidade e os “ contextos colapsados ” “ Mark Zuckerberg, the foundin of Facebook, is quoted as having said, “ Having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity. ” “ Even when teens have a coherent sense of what they deem to be specifi in a uniqu setting, their friends and peers do not necessarily share their sense of decorum and norms. ” “ What makes this especially tricky for teens is that people who hold power over them often believe that they ar right to look, judge, and share, even when their interpretations may be constructed wholly out of context. ” “ A context collapse occurs when people are forced to grapple simultaneously with otherwise unrelated social contexts that are rooted in different norms and seemingly demand different social responses.
These context collapses happen much more frequently in networked publics. ” “ In Iowa, I starte up casually chatting with a teen girl who was working through her sexuality.
Th tension comes up over and over again, particularly with youth who are struggling to make sense of who they are and how they fit into the broader world. ” E ainda sobre privacidade: “ Just because teenagers use internet sites to connect to other people doesn ’ t mean they don ’ t care about their privacy.
Definitely to go ahead and say that teenagers don ’ t like privacy is pretty ignorant and inconsiderate honestly, I know, on the adults ’ part. ” Deixo também algumas conclusões gerais que me parecem sintetizar muito bem todo o espírito do livro: “ It is difficul to make technology the target of our hopes and fear.
