Pew Study Indicates Teens are Into Social Media

Pew Study Indicates Teens are Into Social Media

Pew Internet & American Life Project recently released a [study](http://www.pewinternet.org/PPF/r/230/report_display.asp) revealing that social media plays a role in the lives of a majority of teenagers. Questions that teenagers were asked ranged from what type of Internet connection they utilize to whether or not they have an instant messenger account or blog.
According to the report titled, “Teen and Social Media,” 64 percent of teenagers who are online are participating in at least one form or another of creating content online. While teenage girls are more likely to post content compared to teenage boys, boys are almost 10 percent more likely to post video content. The study also points out that “content creation is not just about sharing creative output; it is also about participating in conversations fueled by that content. Nearly half (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.’”
Both the [report](http://www.pewinternet.org/pdfs/PIP_Teens_Social_Media_Final.pdf) and a copy of the [questionnaire](http://www.pewinternet.org/pdfs/PIAL%20Parents%20&%20Teens%2006%20FINAL%20Topline.doc) are available on the Pew Internet & American Life Project website.
