Media Consumption Among 8-18 Year Olds
Interesting stats from the latest Kaiser Family Foundation study of media consumption among young people (via Business Insider):
Young people spend more time consuming media on their cellphones than talking into them.
They’re watching 38 more minutes per day of TV content in 2009 versus 2004, but 25 minutes less (per day) of it is live on an actual TV.
Reading books is up almost 20% (21 minutes to 25 minutes per day) since 1999. But magazine and newspaper reading are down 40% and 57%, respectively, to 9 minutes and 3 minutes per day. Time spent reading anything on paper (38 minutes) is dwarfed by time spent watching TV content (4 hours 29 minutes) or time in front of a computer (1 hour 29 minutes).
