Social Media is everywhere and growing daily. It is extremely rare for a teen today not to have some form of online presence. Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube or a combination. Not to mention Tumblr and Pinterest. It is therefore, no surprise that there is a growing trend of using social media as the basis of the plot within young adult fiction.
