Blogs ARE taking over!

After checking out my interviewee’s blog, I found some interesting statistics. As we have learned in our Media, Culture, and Society course- teens are often looked at for direction toward the next trend- well blogging is it according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project research. Some interesting statistics included: 19% of online youth ages 12-17 have created their own blog. That’s almost four million people! 38% of teens (almost 8 million people) read blogs. Interestingly, 27% of online adults blog. I wonder how many of these adults are blogging about their corporations? I urge everyone to check out the statistics because you can learn more interesting facts about why many people use blogs to write about other things than their corporation.
