Young People
And Social Media:
Contemporary Children's Digital Culture

Edited by Dr. Steve Gennaro & Blair Miller | 2021

Bailey wrote Chapter 7: "Living Their Best Life: Instagram, SocialComparison and Young Women". This edited collection explores Children Youth and Digital Culture – in particular the practices, relationships, consequences, benefits, and outcomes of children’s experiences with, on, and through social media – by bringing together a vast array of different ideas about childhood and children’s lives. These ideas here are drawn from scholars working in a variety of different and often seemingly disparate disciplines, and more than just describing the social construction of childhood or an understanding of children’s lives, this collection seeks to encapsulate not only how children exist on social media but also how their physical lives are impacted by their presence on social media.

June 15, 2022
