The number of teenagers in America recording and publishing videos on the web has risen, according to a recent survey.
Findings by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project reveal that in the last six years there has been a rise in the use of online video amongst teens. Over 25% of youths have taped and published a video to the Internet on sites like YouTube in contrast to 14% in 2006.
And it shows that the usage of online video is much more popular with the younger generation as opposed to the older because only 14% of adults said that they publish videos on the web.
The report, dubbed ‘Teens and Online Video’, found that 37% of US teens video chat using programmes like Skype or Google Talk. And girls are more likely to chat online than boys.
But the study found that girls have become more tech-savvy over the years. In 2006, boys were nearly twice more likely to record and upload videos than girls whereas today boys and girls are equally likely to engage in online video.
And teens on Facebook and other social media sites are the most prone to shoot and post video than those who do not use social media. Of all the youngsters surveyed, who were aged 12-17 years-old, 16% had a profile on Twitter and 46% of these record and upload video on the web.
