Youth hub has conducted a survey among South African teens, which looks at the way they make use of social media and what this means for their interpersonal connections.
About 650 teenagers from around Cape Town were surveyed to find out what they were looking for in their interactions on social media.
Talking to CapeTalk's Pippa Hudson, Andrew Vaughan of Youth Hub said that the survey found that 75 percent of teenagers prefer face-to-face interactions when it comes to meaningful relations.
About 20 percent said instant messaging (e.g Whatsapp) was their most meaningful way of connecting.
And 4 percent said that Facebook would be the place were they find meaningful connections.
