Teenage Internet Usage
Transcript of Teenage Internet Usage
Of the 20: 8 were female, 12 were male.
How is it accessed? How often? Of those polled:
70% spend 2 or more hours online daily.
Only 10% spend less than an hour. Where? 50% reported a mobile device being their most frequent access point.
Only 25% access from a home computer. Others access the internet via a gaming platform or outside of home. When? Statistically, 95% of students accessed the internet after school.
Of that 95%, 55% were ONLY after school, and 40% reported all day access What is accessed? When polled, teens reported that they accessed a variety of sites. Surprisingly, social networking (Facebook/Twitter) and multimedia (music/video) tied at a 30% usage rate among teens, followed by gaming, with a 25% access rate.
Focusing specifically on social networking, Facebook, unsurprisingly, leads with a 65% access rate. Twitter is behind Facebook with a 30% access rate, followed by Google+ (only 1 person reported this).
MySpace was reported with 0 votes (not to be a surprise, with the fast evolution of social networking). Understanding the Internet On a scale of 1-10, 95% of teens felt that they ranked an 8 or above for online understanding. Of that 95%, 57% specifically placed themselves at an 8.
Surprisingly, 15% of students admitted to feeling overwhelmed while using the Internet.
There was an interesting split in kids who believed at least one parent understood the internet well. It was nearly a 50% split (55/45). Other Information In a poll on acronyms, surprisingly, 10% reported a preference on not using acronyms. "YOLO" came in the lead with 30%, and "OMG" just behind it with 20%. No other acronyms held any prominent usage.
90% of students believe the Internet is a good resource for information.
In a poll on YouTube videos, 85% chose a funny video, 10% specifically chose One Direction, and only 1 person chose an educational video. Conclusion: In my survey, I was surprised to find that social networking doesn't hold as prominent of a role as I had expected. Social networking was split evenly with multimedia. I was also surprised to see that gaming was reportedly used most by 25% of teens.
Another surprise came from the lack of acronym use from some. This shows that people still practice proper grammar and it matters to them.
The study was quite interesting.
