Today on the Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - Noah Michelson, Executive Editor with Huffington Posts Gay Voices, returns to the show as he does every Friday to help us close out the week in LGBT stories making headlines over at Gay Voices.

4:35pm ET - It’s no secret that teenagers today communicate differently than any other previous generation, using services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, but does social media affect the quality of teens’ lives?  In It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens, youth culture and technology expert Danah Boyd uncovers some of the major myths regarding teens’ use of social media.  She explores tropes about identity, privacy, safety, danger, and bullying, and ultimately argues that society fails young people when paternalism and protectionism hinder their ability to become informed, thoughtful, and engaged citizens through their online interactions.  She joins us today to discuss her new book and how social media shapes the lives of young people today. You can read her Blog here and follow her on twitter.
