|Abstract:||The purpose of this study is to examine how demographics, addiction symptoms, information literacy, parenting styles and internet activities can predict 'internet risks'. Data were gathered from a probability sample of 718 adolescents and teenagers, aged 9-19 in Hong Kong, using face-to-face interviews. Results show that adolescents who are often targets of harassment tend to be older boys with a high family income. They are targets probably because they spend a lot of time on social networking sites (SNSs) and prefer the online setting. Adolescents who encounter a lot of unwelcome soliciation of personal or private information online tend to be older girls. In information literacy, they are generally very competent with publishing tools but are not structurally literate, especially in understanding how information is socially situated and produced. Implications and recommendations for future research are discussed.|
