The rise of social media has revolutionized the way in the sharing of information and communication between people around us. Benefits of digital engagement include community bonding via closure of age and skills gaps. Societal implications (depending on the context) can involve consumerism, narcissism and privacy issues. Presented findings shall examine the correlation between social media and behaviour amongst the youths.
