Just like with diaries, teen girls tend to blog more than their male counterparts, but boys post more video, a new study finds.
About 35 percent of all online teen girls blog, compared with only 20 percent of boys, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project “Teens and Social Media.”
“Girls continue to dominate most elements of content creations,” the study finds.
About 54 percent of the girls online post photos compared with 40 percent for boys, but boys are nearly twice as likely as girls to have posted video online (19 percent vs. 10 percent).
Overall, 28 percent of online teens have their own blog, up from 19 percent in 2004, while 27 percent of the teens maintain their own Web page.
