In my quest to learn how teenagers use the social networks, I came across this Mashable article with iconograph showing stats of how teens plug-in to the digital space.
Here is the single most “Ahhh Moment” takeaway for me:
“Surprisingly, a majority of survey participants say they prefer to chat face-to-face instead of text or tweet. One-third of teens actually desire time off from the Internet. Around 36% of teens who responded said they wish “they could go back to a time when there was no Facebook.”
TEENS WANT TO GO BACK TO A TIME WHERE THERE WAS NO FACEBOOK. Shocks the hell out of me! I never would have guessed that, but I’m biased because I feel like Facebook changed my life. I can’t live without it!
Other questions that are answered:
- Which do teens use more: Text, Facebook or Twitter?
- Does social networking make teens more confident or less confident?
- Which teens are using the social networks more? Girls or boys?
