Healthy Teen Network is getting ready to move our sex education app to the next level by applying for a larger grant which will allow us to finalize the app and distribute it to youth and youth-serving professionals. In an effort to understand the social media market better, we would like youth to answer a few questions about their use of social media. We will randomly select one respondent to receive a $20 gift card.

We are most interested in having girls complete this survey, but welcome all responses. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
