Study: Media Habits Changing For Young People
A recent Edison Research study titled "American Youth Study: 2010," has documented changes in the media habits of young people in the United States, with respondents moving away from traditional radio and toward the Internet and mobile devices for music discovery and listening. Twenty percent of 12–24 year-olds reported listening to online radio service Pandora while only 6 percent indicated they listened to online streams of terrestrial radio stations. And while 51 percent reported they discovered music through traditional radio, heavy music discovery competition has grown from sources such as YouTube (31 percent) and social networking sites (16 percent). Additionally, 12–24 year-olds have increased the time they spend on the Internet from 59 minutes per day in 2000 to nearly three hours per day in the new study, and 40 percent use their mobile phones to listen to stored music.
