    New technology and young people's consumer identitites. A comparative study between Finland and Brazil Terhi-anna Wilska, Sueila Pedrozo . Young, Vol. 15, No. 4, 343-368 (2007)
    This article investigates new definitions of the self and identity vis-à-vis digital media and consumption styles among young people. The research is based on an empirical survey conducted in Finland in 2001 and re-done in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2003–04. The main goal of this study is how information and communication technology (ICT) relates to young people's consumer identities in two very different countries. In Finland, equal access to new technology is widespread. In Brazil, digital exclusion is predominant due to social inequalities in income distribution. The results showed that young people's use of and attitudes towards ICT are surprisingly similar in both countries, and in both countries we found connections between consumer identities and ICT use and related attitudes. However, in Brazil, the father's educational level explained attitudes towards ICT better than consumer identities did. In Finland, gender was a more powerful determinant than in Brazil, which is a bit surprising. However, social and cultural differences make this comparison a bit difficult and the results must be treated with caution.

    New Global Study From MTV, Nickelodeon and Microsoft Challenges Assumptions About Relationship Between Kids, Youth & Digital Technology. July 24, 2007.PRNewswire Survey among 18,000 kids and youth from 16 countries
    "The study found that while many young people have access to similar digital technologies, they use them in very different ways. "Technology is adopted and adapted in different ways in different parts of the world -- and that depends as much on local culture as on the technology itself," said Colleen Fahey Rush, Executive Vice President of Research for MTV Networks."

    USA Latest Research on Teens, the First Amendment and News Consumption
    Researchers at the University of Connecticut, working with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, last year released a massive study of America's teens and their attitudes about our basic freedoms.
    The latest findings from the study of 112,000 students: Teens are plugged into the news. The survey made headlines when it revealed that 75 percent of the kids either didn't know about or care about the First Amendment. That was the sad news. But there also was some good news: a telling statistic about youth news consumption. A total of 57 percent of the teens said that they consume news from at least one source every day. More than three-quarters -- 76 percent -- said that they consume news from several sources every week.
    Younger Generation Embracing Technology Like Never Before. (Forrester Research) By Antone Gonsalves, TechWeb Technology News (July, 31)
    From older Baby Boomers to young adults, people use the same kinds of technology, but it's the youngest generation that's integrating it into their daily lives at a faster rate than ever before. Generation Yers, defined as 18 to 26 years old, are spending more time online, watching less TV, engaging in more social computing activities, such as instant messaging; and using more social networking sites like MySpace than any other generation, Forrester Research Inc. said. Other generations are using new devices such as mobile phones in similar numbers as Gen Yers, but they haven't embraced the technology like youngest adults."

    "Existe una consolidada representación social que une estrechamente juventud y tecnología, hasta el punto de entender la relación con lo tecnológico como un criterio de diferencia intergeneracional. El presente estudio se dedica a analizar en qué medida existe realmente dicho vínculo y cuál puede ser el trasfondo del mismo. Es de especial interés el análisis de la relación entre tecnología y construcción social, o el señalamiento de algunos efectos de carácter estructural que la relación entre jóvenes y tecnología supone en campos como el de la integración social o laboral, la distinción entre los espacios de ocio y de trabajo, y las relaciones familiares o las interpersonales."

    Discussion: MySpace and Deleting Online Predators Act (DOPA)
    Interview with Henry Jenkins (co-director of the Comparative Media Studies Program at MIT) and danah boyd (PhD student at the School of Information, University of California-Berkeley) was conducted via email by Sarah Wright of the MIT News Office.

    danah boyd: "Recent federal legislation, Deleting Online Predators Act (DOPA) would require schools and libraries that receive federal aid “to protect minors from commercial social networking websites and chat rooms.” The proposed law would extend current regulations that require all federally funded schools and libraries to deploy internet filters. The law is so broadly defined that it would limit access to any commercial site that allows users to create a profile and communicate with strangers. This legislation is targeting MySpace, but it would also block numerous other sites, including blogging tools, mailing lists, video and podcast sites, photo sharing sites, and educational sites like NeoPets."
