American teens shun blogging

Blogging rates fall for US teens

Younger internet users in America are turning away from blogging, according to a new study.

The research, conducted by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, found that the number of 12 to 17-year-olds who maintained a blog had halved since 2006, falling from 28 to 14 per cent.

It is thought the trend is a result of the increase in popularity of micro-blogging sites such as Facebook and MySpace. The report discovered 73 per cent of American teenagers were members of social networking sites. A similar study in November 2006 found 55 per cent of young people were members of social websites.

Amanda Lenhart, lead author of the study said that the fall of teen blogging was initially surprising.
