Social media gives teens new platforms for self-expression, validation and even potential fame — but at what cost?
Today, thanks to the internet, teens are able to connect and engage with their culture, celebrities, movies, brands – in ways never before possible. But is that real empowerment, or do corporations and marketers quietly hold the upper hand? FRONTLINE’s 2014 film explores how the teen quest for identity has migrated to the web, and the possible ramifications for “Generation Like.”
