A new Nielsen report suggests the belief teens are eschewing conventional for social media is somewhat mythical. They're still glued to the TV, reading (gasp) printed media, and playing in the new sphere but not living in it.
They watch less online video than adults. They watch TV substantially --- three hours-plus a day, up in the last year. The PC is the second-most-popular medium at 52 minutes. One in four read a paper.
Interestingly, they spend less time online than other demographic groups: 11 hours per month, compared to an average of 29 hours in the general population.
