How YouTube is influencing teenagers’ values [video]

There’s an active community on YouTube that could have a lot of implications for teenagers, both now and especially 5 years down the road. Your youth group kids who watch a lot of YouTube videos are most likely not just randomly watching videos here or there because they’re bored, but instead they’re forming para-social relationships with people who share their lives with us on youTube, and thus their values on YouTube.

Who are your youth group kids watching and identifying with on YouTube? And how does that influence their own values and perspective on life? That’s what Jeremy of the MrMinistryMan YouTube Channel and I talk about in this video. At the end we give some practical advice and tips for how to start talking with your youth group kids about this as well as some YouTube lingo to make you sound smart. :)
