Teens are sharing more photos and personal information on social media, but they are also taking calculated steps to manage their online reputations, according to "Teens, Social Media, and Privacy," a study released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center and the Berkman Center at Harvard University.

The study's focus groups also indicated that teens are increasingly using Twitter and moving away from Facebook.

That fact also turned up in "Gen Z: The Limitless Generation," another study on how teens use the internet from Wikia and Ipsos MediaCT

"A lot of them are reporting that they're bored with Facebook," said Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikia and founder of Wikipedia.
