Sexual health is impacted by the implementation of social media platforms (SMP) among entire communities. Late adolescents are among the most vulnerable groups to social media norms toward personal attitudes and sexual health behaviors. This dissertation examines the relationship between social media platforms and sexual health behaviors and impressions among adolescents. Results of this study did not provide statistical significance in correlations for social media platforms and behaviors. However, the practical significance from the descriptive analysis is beneficial to understanding the new generation of adolescents perceptions toward sexual health. The findings from this study will assist in examining what influences social media platforms may have on behaviors and impressions that occur in everyday life among adolescents. In addition, findings will assist health educators in developing more lines of communication to disseminate sexual education information to adolescents.
