55 percent of teens use Internet to network

Posted on Saturday, January 13 2007 @ 08:30:11 CET by

A new survey says 55 percent of teens between 12 and 17 use the Internet to network.
More than half of US teenagers use social networking sites like MySpace, but girls go online to reaffirm existing friendships, while boys are more often there to flirt, according to a survey of youth ages 12 to 17 by the Pew Internet & American Life Project.

The survey showed that two-thirds of teens who have created social networking profiles limit site access to selected viewers, while 17 percent use their sites to flirt.

The study shows teenagers are aware of the risks of revealing too much data about themselves and are taking steps to protect their privacy -- a concern that has made the sites controversial with parents, school officials, and politicians.
While 29% of the boys flirt online through social networking sites, only 13% of the girls do the same. More details at Boston Globe.
