Girls showering each other with hearts, expressions of love and compliments. "Sweet mouse" diminutive in addition to sexualized self-portrayal. What about the selfie craze and the cult of best friends? The socialization of young people today increasingly takes place online. The already stressful phase of self-discovery and personal development is made even more complex by smartphones and the fast public 24-hour exchange on Facebook & Co. The school and the club are always in your pocket and in front of you. The possibility of comparison not only with one's own social environment, but with the whole world, apparently puts especially young girls under great pressure. Superlatives everywhere: the most beautiful, the very best, forever and ever.
Martin Voigt was one of the first to put something that everyone who is active in social networks has experienced before, but cannot fully explain itself, on a scientific basis and illuminates the behavior of young female teenagers on the Internet. Using specific text and case studies, he analyzes the interaction patterns of young girls who are characterized by extreme emotional dependency and the urge for perfect perception. From the perspective of youth language research and psychology, he describes phenomena and causes, whereby in addition to the changed communication, the changed society and socio-political developments come into focus.
The author dares to draw his own conclusions, refreshingly away from the politically correct, early sexualized and multi-parental zeitgeist, and to question the motto of the “It's all good, only different” mainstream. Scientifically sound and at the same time lively written, the book helps to better understand the youth culture of the digital natives, who will form the core of our society in a few years. A book that should not only interest teachers, self-reflective people looking back and parents of the girls' generation born in the 2000s.
