Digital media are increasingly influencing the lives of young people. Around the world, adolescents and young people are using digital media as a platform to learn, experience, and communicate. Across Asia, and increasingly in the Pacific, young people use smartphones, tablets and computers to engage in diverse online activities, such as social networking, instant messaging/texting, and browsing websites/search engines. This connectivity creates both positive opportunities to access sexual and reproductive health information but also challenges on many fronts.
