The Emergence of New Media

From the Editors Weblog via Raw Story:

The Pew Internet and American Life Project released a report on November 2 which shows that "half of all teenagers and 57% of teens who use the Internet could be considered Content Creators." This means, "they have created a blog or webpage, posted original artwork, photography, stories or videos online or remixed online content into their own new creations."

The report also discovered that 19% of teenagers keep a blog and that 38% read them.

[...]

Apart from the frequency of blog use, teenage habits have further ramifications for newspapers.

News habits: According to the study, 84% of blogging teenagers and 72% of their non-blogging peers get their "news or info about current events" online. For political news, 70% of teenage blogger and 52% of non-bloggers turn to the Net.
Joe Trippi is right. The revolution will not be televised.
