    I truly enjoyed all of this information! I noticed that throughout the presentation, it was noted that most adolescents use social media, but I wonder how adolescents without social media feel about not using it, or what their reasons are for not using it. Increased ego strength? More FOMO?

    Great question! I didn’t find articles that reported on reasons for no social media. Perhaps some combination of lack of access, strict parental rules, not interested? I would suggest that *some* use of social media keeps a teen connected to their social world, the key (as with all things 🙂 ) is moderation.
