The decline of teen blogging (podcast) | For the Record Podcast – CNET News:
“WASHINGTON, D.C.–A study conducted by Pew Internet & American Life Project found a decline of blogging among teens and younger adults, and a small increase in blogging among adults over 30.

The study, published Wednesday, also found that only 8 percent of teenagers are using Twitter, though among high-school girls, the number climbs to 13 percent. Not surprisingly, social networking continues to grow among all age groups. Seventy-three percent of online teens use social-networking sites, compared to 55 percent in 2006.

For a summary and analysis of the survey, I spoke with study director Amanda Lenhart after she presented her findings to the Online Safety Technology Working Group here.”
