Teens + Digital Media


As a "teen between the ages of 13-17"...
What are your thoughts on the information posted above?

I think that all of the information above it true. I'm a gamer but am increadabley shy when meeting in person. I do have a facebook but to be honest my mom's on mine more then I am, I chose to not play on it and beacome like the other 90% of teens where they spend more time on facebook then say reading a book. Geuss I'm just a geek like that! ;)

I have no doubt that all of this is true but, I prefer to socialize in person, its critical for this generation to not be sucked into the media.
Rock On!

Wow i didn't realize how much people use online to communicate with people.

Anna F December 3, 2012 at 2:37 PM

I think the information is pretty accurate. I'm not a big "social networker", but I do spend a lot of time in virtual worlds. I was pleasantly surprised to see face-to-face interaction is still the most popular way to communicate with friends.

I am also spend a lot of time in virtual worlds but I wasn't surpised to see face to face was the most popluar to communitcate. I've never been a face-to-face beacuse I am very shy.

wow, so many people use Facebook. I prefer person so I can interact with them better.

Neven H. December 6, 2012 at 10:40 AM

That is very interesting. I was very shocked when I saw that face-to- face was the most populuar, Because When I think of communication, I think of texting and facebook, or twitter.

Wow amazing how many people prefer social media. I think face to face interactions are the best. However social media can be entertaining.

Im surprised that only 9% of people use headset to chat in a game. I see people use those all the time...
Also great to see 49% like to communicate in person.

Connor December 6, 2012 at 10:34 PM

I am a guy who likes to communicate to others in person or on the phone, I resent the thought of communicating by Facebook, texting, or video game

I'm just happy to see that face to face is still the favorite way to communicate!

Hannah F/Kaiju December 7, 2012 at 6:12 PM

I think the majority of this is likely true. However I myself socialize with lots of friends over the internet as they live far away.

Savannah.D December 10, 2012 at 12:20 PM

I think this the information is pretty accurate. I like to talk to my friends in person but love texting them as well! I feel like there's more than 3% of online talking my guy friends are allll ways talking on xbox or some online game

Payton December 12, 2012 at 9:07 AM

This is very accurate, and very interesting.

Nick C. December 16, 2012 at 2:20 PM

I talk to my friends on the phone, but I text more.

Emily January 10, 2013 at 11:21 AM

I like talking to someone in person. When you talk online you can insult someone because there is no tone of voice or body language or any thing. And it can be easy to misspell something and write something like a bad word which is embarrassing and such

Angel January 18, 2013 at 8:55 PM

I prefer face to face...but I text and Skype a lot. I am not surprised that a lot more people text more than talking on the phone.

MariaA January 24, 2013 at 10:33 PM

This was an interesting break down of "our" social skills. I am very shy so I would rather communicate via live chat etc. I am happy to see that 19% of "us" are more sympathetic to others because of the internet, people need to think of others' feelings more and the world would be a better place.
