Some teens are supercommunicators

Posted at 2:56 PM on December 20, 2007 by Julia Schrenkler

Jon Gordon of Future Tense reports that teenagers are creating more Internet content but are abandoning e-mail:

"A new study classifies more than a quarter of online teens as 'supercommunicators,' meaning they use all available electronic tools available to them, from the land line to text messaging to social networks."

Gordon spoke with Amanda Lenhart, a Senior Research Specialist for The Pew Internet & American Life Project. While she described how teens use multiple channels of communication - indeed, the supercommunicators use all they can - she also stated that e-mail is, "the least popular of all options for all teens" when it comes to messaging.

I have to wonder how that perception of e-mail will change business communications, or how the work world will change that generation.
