Divided on the net

The way young people use the internet is changing rapidly, with mobile access and social networking growing in popularity. One of the fastest growing uses of the internet is for social networking. However, few people create their own content or use the net for social activism.

The digital divide is sill a reality. Those who not are using the net:

  1. Poor
  2. Uneducated
  3. Elderly

Silver surfers need to be encouraged more to try the web. According to US study, "Internet use falls off sharply after the age of 55 and among people who have retired. Only 31% of retired people use the internet, compared with 81% of those in work and 97% of students, a pattern which has persisted since 2003."
