Teenagers can prevent themselves from being manipulated by the social media by simply listening to their parents advices regarding the proper use of the social media.
This is not to say that all teens are in danger online, but understanding ways to help your teen protect themselves is the key to preventing further victimization.

1. Set clear, consistent rules with your teen around the use of technology. It's also important to talk with your teen about the consequences of sexting.

2. Get familiar with technology. If your teen is using it, so should you. Make sure you understand concepts like email, texting, IMing, gaming, social networking, cell phone and web cameras.

3. Ask your teen about Facebook and MySpace. While Facebook has tried to make it easier to set your teen's privacy settings, many people still have personal date exposed and don't even know it.

4. Set clear boundaries about what your teen may and may not do with their cell phones. This includes monitoring the amount of time your child spends on social networking sites and when they use the sites.

Why dose media. Dosent reflect the society. You live in
Weegy: You are what you eat; You become what you believe; I am not my art. [ A 2011 study from the University of Texas at Austin's Department of Psychology titled "Manifestations of Personality in Online Social Networks: Self-Reported Facebook-Related Behaviors and Observable Profile Information" found that Facebook users are no different online than they are offline. The study also declared a strong connection between someone’s real personality and their Facebook-related behavior. Social and personality processes, according to the study, accurately mirror non-virtual environments. It was published in the academic journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking. Professor Samuel D. Gosling and his team looked at the big five personality traits - openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism and found that self-reported personality traits are accurately reflected in online social networks such as Facebook. Extroverted users reported the most friends and the highest engagement while conscientious types had the least. Simply, extroverts engaged more than introverts. Merriam-Webster defines society in part as, companionship or association with one's fellows : a voluntary association of individuals for common ends : an organized group working together or periodically meeting because of common interests, beliefs, or profession : an enduring and cooperating social group whose members have developed organized patterns of relationships through interaction with one another : a community, nation, or broad grouping of people having common traditions, institutions, and collective activities and interests. Social media has changed society in many ways. We used to just live in a society – our neighborhood, town, city – and (hopefully) looked out for each other, cared for each other and got together for specific causes. This is our community. The human social creature needed human contact/interaction and participated within that ... (More)
