More teens than ever sharing—and restricting—content online

With headlines constantly touting the adoption of social networking, blogging, and text messaging among US teenagers, it comes as no surprise that Internet use among that demographic is statistically still on the rise. Teens are blogging, using social networks, posting photos, and sharing videos in record numbers. Examining the details in a new Teens and Social Media report (PDF) from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, however, reveals that with all this online socializing, teens are actually more conscious than ever of how and with whom they share their content.



In summary, 93 percent of US teens use the Internet now in some way. Many of the general numbers are up from Pew's 2004 study: 39 percent of these teens share their own artistic creations like artwork, photos, stories, or videos (up from 33 percent in 2004), 28 percent have created their own online journal or blog (up from 19 percent), and 26 percent remix content they find online for their own creations (also up from 19 percent). Altogether, that makes up for 64 percent of online teens, or 59 percent of all teens that are creating something on the web.
