Youth prefer MySpace to TV

January 8, 2008

MySpace, the social networking giant, claims to be drawing young people away from television and video games as they use its web pages to make friends and money.

A group of 18- to 24-year-olds drawn from 1,000 people surveyed by Future Laboratory said it would rather spend 15 minutes visiting social networking sites than watching television, reading, playing video games or talking on mobile phones.
