Snack Culture: How do young people use social media?

October 15th, 2009 by Graham Attwell

You may remember a few days ago I lamented the lack of European survey data on how young people are using social media. And now along comes this presentation by Andrea Pozzali reporting on a survey of Italian students on just that subject. some of the translations are a little strange, some of the results even more surprising (do Italian students really not read books?). But this shows much promise – would anyone be interested in a (self funded?) project to undertake such a study across different countries?

NB No time for a longer post – have to go to Ghent. But Jo Turner Attwell is writing a longer commentary on the findings presented here.

  1. [That is of course GrahamAttwell, but the GrahasmAttwell typo gave me the giggles. Apologies. Corrected on the tracked-back pages.] But this points to an issue with blog conversations, repeating services like Posterous and syndication. Of the comments above, one is self-referential and two are duplicate postings from two blogs that I selectively populate via Posterous. So, really, there is one comment.

    Barcelona to go Open Source

    The Spanish newspaper, El País, has reported that the City of Barcelona is in the process of migrating its computer system to Open Source technologies.
