Abstract

Adolescent online safety has historically been framed as preventing teens from being exposed to various online risks, such as sexual solicitations, cyberbullying, and exposure to explicit content. However, in trying to accomplish this goal, researchers must first deeply understand the types of risks teens encounter online. Some of these risks, however, involve very sensitive and possibly illegal artifacts, such as images that could be classified as child pornography, and pose serious ethical issues associated with conducting research.

Keywords: Adolescent online safety, sexting, privacy, ethics
