Adults aren't the only demographic concerned about privacy
Trying to imagine a teenager without a cell phone or tablet is like envisioning a PETA supporter wearing a Michael Vick jersey. We're sure they both exist, they're just extremely rare specimens that are easily the exception to the norm. Teens love their mobile gadgets, though despite their rabid infatuation with texting, Snapchatting, and other mobile activities, they're surprisingly cognizant of privacy issues.
According to the results of Piper Jaffray's 25th bi-annual teen survey, Android is growing in popularity among today's teens, but the iPhone is still the most sought after smartphone. Almost half of those surveyed -- 48 percent -- already own an iPhone, up from 40 percent last fall, while nearly two-thirds -- 62 percent -- plan on purchasing an iPhone the next time they buy a handset.
Google+ grew to over 90 million members in short order, and for the most part, it did it without the benefit of teenagers flocking from Facebook (not counting the ones who slipped through the cracks and were previously able to open an account). A change in policy now allows teens age 13 and over to join Google's social networking service, but will they find it fun enough to stick around?
A new report reveals some startling statistics about the world's most popular online playground known as Facebook. The social networking service with over 500 million members is being overrun by kids under 13 years old, and even under 10 years old, many of which were harassed, threatened, or subjected to other forms of cyberbullying on the site in the past year.
