One fifth of teens have their own blog
Nearly three in five school-age teens with Internet access have created online content, including Web pages with artwork, photos and stories - and about a fifth have their own blogs, which also allow friends and other readers to create feedback postings.
Those are some of the findings from a survey of 12- to 17-year-olds conducted by the Pew Internet and American Life Project.
The survey also found that older school-age girls with online access were most likely to keep a blog. About a quarter of girls, ages 15 to 17, did so, compared with 15 percent of boys in that age group.
Among adults, Pew says about 7 percent of Internet users have created their own blogs, or online diaries. And while 26 percent of adults say they read blogs, 38 percent of young people with online access said they do so.
Researchers note that the main reason teens are drawn to blogs is a wish to keep in touch with one another.
"Blogging for teens is about staying tuned into their friendship networks, not about politics or people getting in trouble at school, which are two of the main narratives that journalists have covered in recent months," says Amanda Lenhart, a senior researcher at Pew who helped compile the report.
The findings, which have a margin of error of 3 percentage points, are based on a random telephone survey of about 1,100 young people and their parents, conducted Oct. 16 to Nov. 28, 2004

A contentless update - Vibration of Perceptions
Wednesday, January 11, 2006
I realised I have not done much work lately for such a long time, and hence am not able to come up with an interesting update.
This blog is still alive and will still be updated over time, although
it may have long intervals in between. Give me some time and I'll come
up with something good soon.

Chitika's Audited revenue less than 50% Unaudited - Vibration of Perceptions

Chitika's Audited revenue less than 50% Unaudited
I finally received the results for my Audited revenue on Chitika
. To my huge surprise, Chitika
only offers 50% of the unaudited revenue to me. Above that, Chitika
still hasn't paid anything into my Paypal Account.
How am I going to pay for the BlogDrive subscriptions?
I was so angry that I quickly wrote a letter to Chitika
Support team to complain. Not too long ago, I noticed that I wasn't the only one suffering.
word of forum threads such as DigitalPoint
are explodingly scary.
Surfing over to Technorati
and you'll find some angry bloggers writing their experience. Among them, ProBlogger in bed with Chitika
and Audit Fraud
. News website reports: Chitika Chikeating
. There's even a brandnew domain name dedicated to anti-Chitika, Shitika Where’s my money???
I guess what makes everyone so angry is noone expected the audited to be way over 10%. Furthermore, many have helped promote Chitika
for it's high paying clicks. What Jensense says pretty much sums it all up.
I hope Chitika
gives a proper explanation and then bankrupt after paying me back my money.
