Teens Are not Internet Couch Potatoes

From David Weisenberg:

From Pew Internet:

One Quarter of Teens Are Super Communicators

The Pew Internet & American Life Project finds that 93% of teens
use the internet, and more of them than ever are treating it as a venue
for social interaction — a place where they can share creations, tell
stories, and interact with others. 64% of online teens ages 12-17 have
participated in one or more among a wide range of content-creating
activities on the internet, up from 57% of online teens in a similar
survey at the end of 2004.

Girls continue to dominate most elements of content creation:

* 35% of all teen girls blog, compared with 20% of online boys

* 54% of wired girls post photos online compared with 40% of online boys.

* 19% of Online boys post video content online, compared to 10% of
online girls who have posted a video online where others could see it.

47% of online teens have posted photos where others can see them,
and 89% of those teens who post photos say that people comment on the
images at least “some of the time.” Many teens, however, limit access
to content that they share.
