New Statistics from Pew Internet: “Teens & Online Video”

From the Report’s Overview:

In a survey of 799 teens conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project between April 19 and July 14, 2011, the teens were asked about a number of online behaviors. The results for video-oriented activities are reported here. Among the findings:

  • 37% of internet users ages 12-17 participate in video chats with others using applications such as Skype, Googletalk or iChat. Girls are more likely than boys to have such chats.

  • 27% of internet-using teens 12-17 record and upload video to the internet. One major difference between now and 2006 is that online girls are just as likely these days to upload video as online boys.

  • 13% of internet-using teens stream video live to the internet for other people to watch.

  • Social media users are much more likely than those who do not use social media to engage in all three video behaviors studied.
