Studying Teens and Technology

The Pew Research Center published five new findings on how teens use technology. According to the Culture Translator created by Axis, the study’s findings provided eye-opening research. In the study, 85% of teens say they use YouTube compared to only 51% who still access Facebook. This is why Mark Zuckerberg’s social media empire recently launched a Youth Portal to bring back this coveted demographic.

More importantly, 45% of teens reported that they are online “almost constantly“. For most, “being online almost constantly is simply a means of social survival.” Read the report yourself and ask your teen if they agree with the findings.
