April 23, 2019
In 2019, being a teenager in the United States is synonymous with owning a smartphone, tablet, desktop, or any smart technology.
How does the constant connection teenagers experience affect their day-to-day lives? According to a study administered by the Pew Research Center, 60 percent of teenagers
between the ages of 13 and 17 say that spending too much time on screens is a major issue facing their age group.
