Youth, Privacy and Reputation (Literature Review)

(Berkman Center)
Authored by Alice E. Marwick, Diego Murgia Diaz, John Palfrey, Youth and Media Policy Working Group Initiative. The scope of this literature review is to map out what is currently understood about the intersections of youth, reputation, and privacy online, focusing on youth attitudes and practices. We summarize both key empirical studies from quantitative and qualitative perspectives and the legal issues involved in regulating privacy and reputation. This project includes studies of children, teenagers, and younger college students. Due to language issues, the majority of this literature covers the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Canada. Download from SSRN.
