I'm liking this headline.  And the fact that I don't have to raise a teenager today.

Wait... 95% of teens are online, 74% of them using mobile, but only 37% of teens have smart phones... the rest are... using other people's phones? How do these numbers add up?

Before buying my first smartphone this spring I had a feature phone that surfed the web pretty well. It wouldn't play videos and lacked some other features, but for basic surfing and interacting with the web, it seemed little different to my current model.

They're still on our lawns, they're just too busy texting their friends and listening to itunes to notice you yelling at them to get off it.

Not sure I'm that interested in hearing Microsoft's data on young internet users, given that they've been throwing hundreds of millions into trying to figure out what kids want for decades, and have utterly failed to capture even a tiny fraction of the youth internet market.

Anyone remember NetGen?http://www.internetnews.com/bus -news/article.php/402081

I bought a house a few years ago and every summer I continue to be amazed at how empty the streets of our neighborhood are.  On a sunny Saturday you can hear a pin drop.

so there is an upside then.

It's too hot here, during the summer, so all the kids stay inside.

But they quoted Danah Boyd, Principal Researcher of Microsoft Research. The only person above her is the Superintendent!

In my company's analytics package, tablets are listed as mobile. That's probably the discrepancy.

They could mean tablets. My kids both have an ipad, but no phone.

csb:

We had a power failure in my neighborhood last summer and all of a sudden there were kids everywhere outside playing tag and football and also riding bicycles, scooters, and skateboards and playing all of the other games that kids play.  I had never even known there were that many kids who lived near the house.

The power came back on and basically they all scattered back into their houses.

It was pretty sad.
