Elon University​-Pew Internet “Future” survey results for youth

I participated in this survey and look forward to reading it slowly:

The fifth “Future of the Internet” survey, fielded by Elon University’s Imagining the Internet Center and the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, are now available online.

The question examined people’s opinions about the likely 2020 future for hyperconnected youth – by 2020 this will be generation AO, for “always on.”

A 36-page report synthesizing the results has been posted online at

You can view fuller details at the Imagining the Internet site at these three specific addresses:
