Technology Use Among Youth (Pew Internet)

The Pew Internet and American Life project’s Amanda Lenhart presented at the Annenberg Public Policty Center on Internet use among the young. No huge surprises here – access is often mobile, and texting is a big part of the online experience for young people.

“In her talk, Amanda focused on bringing together data that highlights the demographic differences among groups of youth in their adoption, use and experiences with technology and social media. While such data may have illustrated what was called a ‘digital divide’ in the past, it now highlights a variety of digital differences among groups of youth.”
