    Someone should do a report on why some people still believe that:

    1) Teens use Twitter
    2) Teens spend money to buy music they can get for free
    3) Teens read newspapers

    There's always hope that businesses -- hey, US and OUR businesses if the demographics fit! -- some day will "get it" regarding teenagers and "young people" in general: Namely, anything someone over 20 thinks is "cool" or "hip" or whatever the current teen expression may be, it's already plunged off teenagers' radar.

    Most adult marketers only THINK they're targeting teenagers, and that story would seem to confirm it's in the marketers' minds only.

    As for newspapers -- do any half-way intelligent businesses or marketers really think teens DO read newspapers?? Duh.
    Generate more fake news.

    >other interesting

    Based on personal observations, if you ask a teen to search for a site, rather than go to a search engine they will try a .com type-in first.

    They also surprised me by being fairly avid users of store locator scripts on sites.

    Not true actually. I have several accounts in different niches and there are some VERY chatty folks across a variety of topics that are using Twitter much more than affiliates are.

    Pick any topic and type it into the twitter search box...

    Headed over to read it now... I already knew teens don't use twitter and college kids are shying away from Facebook because their parents are on it...
