The last ten years have seen a revolution in young people’s relationship with technology thanks to the meteoric rise of smartphone. Tablet use is dropping, while gaming has become more popular as a way to socialise online. Young people are spending an hour more each day chatting to friends online than they did a decade ago.

They also report feeling some pressure to be popular on these sites and have increasingly had negative experiences online or seen content that causes discomfort.
