It is no surprise to hear that Internet use continues to grow. According to a recent Pew Research Study, Internet use among teenagers, 12-17, is now at 93%. Sixty-two percent are going online for current events, 48% for shopping, and 31% to find information on health related issues. Of the latter category, 17% are seeking information on sensitive topics such as drugs and sex (Lenhart, Purcell, Smith, & Zickuhr, 2010).
