Government Online

Pesquisa divulgada pelo Pew Internet Research mostra que mais de 80% dos americanos procuram informações e serviços relacionados a governo na rede mundial de computadores. 

Os gastos do governo também são de interesse dos cidadãos dos EUA: 40% querem saber como são gastas as verbas públicas. 

O Pew Internet ouviu 2.258 pessoas entre 30 de novembro e 27 de dezembro de 2009. A margem de erro é de 2,8 pontos percentuais.

Política vai bem na velha mídia?

Excelente texto da The Economist sobre campanha eleitoral inglesa na nova mídia. A análise desmonta a idéia da obamania:  

“Television is the only technology that can reach so many people in a single day. But others are not far behind. Although their circulation has declined, newspapers still reach large audiences. The Sun, which supports the Conservatives, is read by 8m people each day. By comparison, much-touted social media like Twitter are so niche as to be almost invisible. Get Elected, a political-research outfit, has examined 100 tight races, where online campaigning should presumably be fierce. It found that only 45% of the candidates in those races had Twitter accounts. The politicians who used it attracted an average of just 614 followers. The average English constituency contains 70,000 people.”

Most teens texts friendly daily

Do Pew Internet Research:

Fully two-thirds of teen texters say they are more likely to use their cell phones to text their friends than talk to them to them by cell phone.

One in three teens sends more than 100 text messages a day, or 3000 texts a month.
Daily text messaging by teens to friends has increased rapidly since early 2008. Some 38% of teens were daily texters in February 2008, and that has risen to 54% of teens who use text daily in September 2009. Of the 75% of teens who own cell phones, 87% use text messaging at least occasionally. Among those texters:
  • Half of teens send 50 or more text messages a day, or 1,500 texts a month, and one in three send more than 100 texts a day, or more than 3,000 texts a month.
  • 15% of teens who are texters send more than 200 texts a day, or more than 6,000 texts a month.
  • Boys typically send and receive 30 texts a day; girls typically send and receive 80 messages per day.
  • Teen texters ages 12-13 typically send and receive 20 texts a day.
  • 14-17 year-old texters typically send and receive 60 text messages a day.
  • Older girls who text are the most active, with 14-17 year-old girls typically sending 100 or more messages a day or more than 3,000 texts a month.
  • However, while many teens are avid texters, a substantial minority are not. One-fifth of teen texters (22%) send and receive just 1-10 texts a day or 30-300 a month.
