A Wired Family Update: Your Child & Twitch

In this video we will look at one of the fastest growing content and technologies being adopted by teens: video game live streaming platforms such as twitch and its competitors, YouTube Gaming, Mixer and Caffeine.

What? You’ve never heard of Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Mixer or Caffeine? Well… most working parents haven’t heard of them either… but if you have a child that you’ve allowed to do online video gaming… you should. This area of teen interest is moving faster than the adoption rate of social media after the release of smartphones in 2007 and 2008.

 

To discover more about your child’s use of technology, and how you can help guide them through digital life, please consider ordering our book. All proceeds go to future research that supports our mission to educate families on their child’s digital tattoo.
