Youth today live media saturated lives.
Young people access media in their homes, schools and through portable electronic devices.
Youth make use of new media and technology.
Today’s youth get news online, make online purchases, create their own content for the Internet, and often use more than one digital medium at a time.
Most youth today now have Internet access, but race and class divides remain.
