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

A national telephone survey conducted by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that half of all American teens — or about twelve million youth — have created a blog or Web page; posted original artwork, photography, stories, or videos to the Web; or remixed online content into their own creations. Teen Content Creators and Consumers (29 pages, PDF) also reports that teens are more likely than adults to author and read blogs; that older girls lead the way in creating and sharing self-authored content; and that boys are most likely to download and share files.
