This article explores adolescents´ perceptions of their digital rights. A questionnaire was applied to a sample of secondary school students in Madrid. The questionnaire was designed to explore students' perceptions of their own rights in different digital contexts as well as the uses given by them to different social networks. The survey was designed on the basis of a set of dilemmas made specifically for this study. The dilemmas were designed to explore how students understand their rights when they use digital social networks. This paper argues that adolescents´ understanding of their own rights is a very important issue today in the field of education, especially when we talk about the importance of educating children and young people in active citizenship and in the active defence their rights in different social contexts.
