According to a survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, 64% of online teens ages 12-17 (or 59% of all teens) have participated in one or more online content-creating activities, up from 57% of teens in a similar survey at end 2005.

  • 39% of teens share online their artistic creations (e.g. artwork, photos, stories, or videos), up from 33% in 2005.
  • 33% create or work on webpages or blogs for others, including those for groups they belong to, friends, or school assignments, basically unchanged from 2005 (32%).
  • 28% have created own online journal or blog, up from 19% in 2005, with girls leading the charge.
  • 27% maintain own personal webpage, up from 22% in 2005.
  • 26% remix content found online into own creations, up from 19% in 2005.
  • 47% (more girls) have uploaded photos where others can see them and 14% (more boys) have posted videos online; with many restrict access to the photos/videos in some way at least some of the time. Most receive some feedback on the content they post online.
  • 55% have created a profile on a social networking site such as Facebook or MySpace.
  • In the midst of the digital media mix, the landline is still a lifeline for teen social life.
  • Multi-channel teens layer each new communications opportunity on top of pre-existing channels.
  • Email continues to lose its luster among teens as texting, instant messaging, and social networking sites facilitate more frequent contact with friends.

    All the social media sites do not allow below 18 to register, but usually these kids give a false age and get into it. Parents should be responsible for the children till they become responsible enough.

    most kids today prefer staying at their home and use their computers to socialize with other people rather than going outside, the good thing with it is they are away from harm but the bad thing is they cant practice proper way on how to speak with other people personally and the other thing is they can view porn sites and violence videos.

    i admit the fact that network is something important for our life, but it’s not good for the children staying all day long in front of the computer, because they can waste time.

    Internet as a form of social media for teens is good as they can be creative, resourceful and innovative but proper usage should be guided by the parents.

    The fact that 1/3 of kids are writing and adding to blogs on the internet is surprising to me, but it is bound to increase every year quickly.
