A US study has indicated that younger internet users are losing interest in blogging and switching to shorter and more mobile forms of communication.
The number of 12 to 17-year-olds in the US who blog has halved to 14% since 2006, according to a survey for the Pew Internet and American Life Project.
It suggests they prefer making short postings on social networking sites, and going online on mobile phones.
Somebody should correlate these findings against their grades in language studies. In less than 10 years those of us still in the workforce will be facing a whole generation of employees that can’t write a business report or even a lousy letter.
