Life before the internet? Today's teens and young adults only know about the  digitally connected world. But how is their hyperconnecting affecting them?

 

To find out, Pew  Internet & American Life Project did some research then published its  findings in the Teens and Technology 2013 report. That information was used  to create the following infographic by InternetProvider.

 

Among the research findings...

80% of teens own a computer.78% of teens own a cellphone.37% of teens own a smartphone.

So, how is hyperconnectivity affecting the younger generation?

The technology experts and shareholders surveyed were divided evenly in their  opinion regarding whether being hyperconnectivity was a positive or a  negative.
