Linda Charmaraman, Ph.D., director of the Youth, Media & Wellbeing Research Lab, and her student research assistants shared findings from two research projects - a 2016 post-election survey on media and identity, which had over 1500 participants, and a 2017-18 study on early adolescent social media use and wellbeing.They discussed findings related to the health, wellbeing, and pertinent social issues of the voter and nonvoter participants as well as observations of both online harassment and social support following the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The team also discussed how much a sample of almost 700 future voters (middle school youth) care about politics and community building.
