This article focuses the discussion on privacy implications of communication and media applications of Information Technologies adopted globally by younger users and explores behavioural and social implications that pervasive technologies may have in the sphere of personal relations. While the continuous arrival of advanced communication in daily life is transforming societies, from the more economically advanced countries to the less prosperous ones, the changes in communication and socializing patterns related to global access to Internet are expected to have noticeable outcomes as well as more profound implications in human societies. In particular, due to the amplification effect of social media communication on established boundaries between private and public spaces, these changes may involve challenging consequences for sociability and social norms reproduction among the younger generations, both Western and non-Western societies, with possible collateral effects in the economic and political sphere. In view of that, this chapter illustrate and discusses results from recent surveys and empirical social studies that analyse the access and use of Information Technologies of Communication among the younger population at the world level.

Abstract

This article focuses the discussion on privacy implications of communication and media applications of Information Technologies adopted globally by younger users and explores behavioural and social implications that pervasive technologies may have in the sphere of personal relations. While the continuous arrival of advanced communication in daily life is transforming societies, from the more economically advanced countries to the less prosperous ones, the changes in communication and socializing patterns related to global access to Internet are expected to have noticeable outcomes as well as more profound implications in human societies. In particular, due to the amplification effect of social media communication on established boundaries between private and public spaces, these changes may involve challenging consequences for sociability and social norms reproduction among the younger generations, both Western and non-Western societies, with possible collateral effects in the economic and political sphere. In view of that, this chapter illustrate and discusses results from recent surveys and empirical social studies that analyse the access and use of Information Technologies of Communication among the younger population at the world level.
