New Statistics from Pew Internet: “Teens & Online Video”

New Pew Report:

The Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project is releasing a short report today titled “Teens and Online Video.” The report is available at http://pewinternet.org/Reports/2012/Teens-and-online-video.aspx.

The report examines the prevalence of teens recording and uploading videos, streaming video live and video chatting.  Some of the highlights from the report:

·       37% of internet users ages 12-17 participate in video chats with others using applications such as Skype, Googletalk or iChat. Girls are more likely than boys to have such chats.

·       27% of internet-using teens 12-17 record and upload video to the internet. One major difference between now and 2006 is that online girls are just as likely these days to upload video as online boys.

·       13% of internet-using teens stream video live to the internet for other people to watch.

·       Social media users are much more likely than those who do not use social media to engage in all three video behaviors studied.
