A paper published by Clark and colleagues in Paediatrics suggests the following additional questions to HEADSSS to engage adolescents aged >11 years in a discussion about the role of social media in their lives.

1. Which social media sites/apps do you use on a regular basis?
2. On a typical day, how much time do you spend on social media sites/apps?
3. Do you think you use social media too much?
4. Does viewing social media increase or decrease your self-confidence?
5. Have you experienced cyberbullying, sexting, or someone online asking you to have sex with them?
