Title Adolescents and youth in Internet: discourse analysis of uses, risks and protection Summary Internet access for children and adolescents is an upcoming reality. The aim of this paper is to analyze the uses of the interactive media in the group of teenagers and know how they perceive their risk on the Internet. The methodology used has been six focus groups and a survey of 323 young people. The results describe the broad scope of activities they are implementing the media and the time spent in their daily lives. Internet not only plays an important part of their leisure time, but is also defining its forms of entertainment and its relationship with the environment. To some extent they are aware of the risks associated with Internet, especially those related to the control of their privacy and tend towards a more rational use of the medium as it is more experience in the same or are acquiring greater personal maturity. Keywords Internet, young, teenagers, social media, practice and privacy
