Pew on Social Network Usage

January 7th, 2007

Pew Internet just released a survey on social network usage among American teens. While confirming the known, (i) MySpace is the most visited site (ii) girls are more active than boys, the report goes on to say that “74% of respondents post comments on friend’s blog”. I would have loved to see numbers on “x% of respondents have created or plan to create blog posts”.

MySpace has been a major contributor to the growth of blogs recently, and now forms a major chunk of a blog search result. The last we checked MySpace blogs were contributing 15% to 20% of all pings to weblogs.com, with numbers rising by the day.
