Pew Internet & American Life Project Report: Teen Content Creators and Consumers

The Pew Project (what a name…like “The Stinky Venture”) publishes results of surveys and studies related to Internet use of kids and adults. Their most recent report, Teen Content Creators and Consumers finds that over 50% of teenagers are creators of content for the web. Content includes web pages, blogs, podcasts, videos, etc.

So…kids are publishing online…on their own. Interesting concept this online publishing. What drives them to do it? Authentic audience? Relevant topics? Ability to interact with others? Taking control of their own…destiny? entertainment? learning?

Hmmmm.
