How do teens deal with the complexities of the digital world? Although many scholars have asked this question, few have considered not only the interpersonal concerns that loom large in the lives of teens and young adults but also their relationship with the social media platforms which have become so central to their lives. In this paper we present a study of Danish teens' attitudes towards social media platforms they use most -- Facebook and Snapchat. We find gender differences in attitudes toward each platform. We also illustrate the potential role of a digital education effort in changing teen attitudes.
