Geekzone carries an interesting report about Kiwi kids and their use of cellphones, TV, computers, video games and similar digital technologies — Media study sponsored by MTV and Nickelodeon shows New Zealand uptake of new media:
New Zealand youth are the highest users of mobile phones in comparison to their global counterparts … the average young person 14-24 connected to digital technology has 88 (global average 94) phone numbers in their mobile, 77 (global average 78) people on a buddy list and 75 (global average 86) people in their social networking community.
… Climate impacts on digital technology too. In countries with a strong outdoor culture, such as New Zealand, Australia, Italy and Brazil, young people 14-24 use mobiles for arranging to meet, flirting and taking pictures of their friends.
It’s worth reading the whole article: there’s a lot of information there about children and youth and their digital media habits.
