  • Interesting stuff. I was surprised to see that TV and radio consumption still tops internet use among youth. It is encouraging, though, that most people say that participation in online networks has brought them closer with friends and family.

    One question though... On slide 6, Bennett, Maton and Kervin say that 21% of students online were creating their own content. On slide 21, though, you cite the Pew study, which says 2/3 of online teens are content creators. I wonder how they came to such different numbers. Was content creation defined very differently between these studies, or do you think the numbers have jumped that much between Bennett Maton and Kervin's data collection and the more recent Pew report?
