Annotation:This publication from the Pew Internet & American Life project reports the results of a survey of more than 1,000 parent/child pairs that captured patterns of teen internet and cell phone use by ethnicity, age, and income. Some of the findings: More than half of teens use the internet daily, nearly half have a cell phone, and instant messaging and cell phone text messaging are growing in popularity as communication vehicles. Although the report shows that the percentage of teens using the internet has increased from 73% in 2000 to 87% in 2004, African-American and lower-income teens lag behind their counterparts.
