Teens: No to blogging and tweets; Yes to laziness
In today’s “Young Voices” section of the Charlotte Observer we find this little nugget:
(Name redacted to protect innocence)
“To us, blogging is old news. We teens prefer Facebook over blogging. Why do we like Facebook better? Facebook doesn’t obligate us to think about what we are saying, whereas blogging does. TEENS DO NOT LIKE THINKING OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL.”

Now. I have to hand it to her, she hit the nail on the head – blogging is harder – blogging does require you to think – and yes, Facebook is a much more convenient way to opine. But wow, that last line just hangs there a bit huh.
