Digital media versus print study

In recent years, less than 20 percent of U.S. teens report reading a book, magazine, or newspaper daily for pleasure, while more than 80 percent say they use social media every day, according to recent research . Among 12th-graders, Internet use during leisure time doubled from one to two hours per day. It also increased 75 percent for 10th graders and 68 percent for eighth-graders. Usage rates and increases were fairly uniform across gender, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
