Abstract [sv]

Sociala medier tar en allt större plats i ungdomars vardag, men hur stor plats tar den egentligen. Vi läser i media om hur allt fler ungdomar utsätts för övergrepp, kränkningar och mobbning via sina sociala medier.

Vi vill genom vår studie visa hur några ungdomar själva resonerar kring sin användning av sociala medier. Vi vill även lyfta fram deras tankar kring risker och möjligheter som de själva kan se med sociala medier. Vi har intervjuat sju ungdomar från olika områden i Stockholm i åldrarna 15–19 år.

Slutsatsen av studien är att ungdomarna kan se att det finns risker med sociala medier. De ser samtidigt att möjligheterna som finns med sociala medier, som till exempel att det är en snabb kommunikationskanal till deras kompisar både nära och långt bort, och att de även har tillgång till nyheter och information från hela världen, överväger riskerna.

Young people’s experience of social media’s risks and opportunities

Social media is taking an ever-bigger place in the everyday life of young people, but how much space does it really take. We read in the media about how young people are being subjected to abuse, insults and bullying through their social media.

Through our study, we want to show how some young people themselves argue about their use of social media. We also want to elevate their thoughts on the risks and opportunities they can see with social media. We have interviewed seven young people from different areas of Stockholm between the ages of 15-19 years.

The conclusion of the study is that young people can see that there are risks with social media. At the same time, they see that the potential of social media, such as giving them a fast communication channel to their friends, both close and far away, and also having access to news and information from around the world, contemplates the risks.
