Youth & Technology Trends From SXSW
Ian Schafer has some great highlights from a SXSW panel about what the kids are up to online and on their phones. The discussion hosted by Ypulse, consisted of seven local students ranging from 12-17.
Some ideas from the panel:
* Digg keeps these kids updated. Interestingly enough, they consider it a NEWS site to help keep them up with news of the day.
* NO ONE goes to the regular news sites (CNN.com, NY Times.com, etc.)
* They barely ever use IM anymore. This was almost universally agreed upon.
