Teens and Online Usage:Comparison : 2003 vs 2013

They may be digital natives, but American teens don't fancy everything digital.

 According to data provided to MarketingCharts from a new study from Research Now and KYA BrandResearch, American teens strongly favor offline to online ads across a variety of measures. The respondents were presented with several statements about ads and asked whether each statement applied more to online ads (such as on Facebook, search engines), more to "real-life" ads (such as those on the TV, radio, posters, and magazines), or whether the statement didn't apply. The results indicate that online ads have a long way to go in winning over teens.

US Multiscreen Consumption Patterns: TV Vs Web vs Mobile

The average American today has more ways to watch video — whenever, however and wherever they choose. In theCross-Platform Report, Nielsen finds that the resounding trend is this: Americans are spending more time watching video content on traditional TVs, mobile devices and the Internet than ever before.
Traditional TV
Overall TV viewership increased 22 minutes per month per person over last year, remaining the dominant source of video content for all demographics. In addition, Nielsen data shows that consumers are willing to pay for high-quality TV content, with broadcast-only homes less than a tenth of U.S. TV households.

In an era largely defined by the internet, TV still dominates. According to a new report on media usage from Nielsen, TV is still the most popular device with 290 million Americans (about 92 percent) owning at least one. In contrast, 232 million (ages 13+) own mobile phones and only 211 million Americans are online. The report also revealed that about one in three U.S. TV households owns four or more televisions.
