Social Media and Young Adults: A Pew Internet and American Life Project

August 23, 2010

This report by the Pew Research Center was published in February 2010, and focuses on internet adoption and trends, gadget ownership and wireless connectivity, social media, and the internet as information and economic appliance in the lives and teens and young adults.

Although the data was collected in 2009, this report provides a fairly recent snapshot of how teens and young adults are using new media, which differs from that of older adults. The information may be helpful in terms of how to approach the use of media in the classroom and community.
