Media Institute of South Africa (MISA) has partnered with the Swaziland Youth Empowerment Organisation (LUVATSI) to launch its study on youth usage of social media, which focuses on the benefits and disadvantages of the use of social media by young people.
According to Vuyisile Hlatshwayo, national director for MISA Swaziland, social media is an important source of information for young people that gives them greater freedom to express themselves.
The report states that, “Unlike the mainstream media, social media gives young people the opportunity to speak in their voices. There is greater benefit for allowing young people access to affordable services that can enable them to share ideas faster and simpler.”
