Tweenage girls who spend endless hours watching videos and media multitasking with digital devices tend to be less successful with social and emotional development, according Stanford researchers, including Clifford Nass, professor of communication.
But these unwanted effects might be warded off with something as simple as face-to-face conversations with other people.
Here Nass talks about the research, which included a survey asking 3,461 girls, ages 8 to 12, about their electronic diversions and their social and emotional lives. "The results were upsetting, disturbing, scary," Nass said.
