As the first Youth Takeover of KQED wraps up on Friday, Bay Area high school students join Forum to discuss the role that social media plays in their lives. Members of the first generation to grow up using Instagram and Snapchat will share what they see as the benefits and drawbacks of social media, how they manage their online personas and what their virtual relationships mean to them.
