The Digital World of Teens (Infographic)

Here are a few things that stand out:

1. 90% of america’s teens have used social media.  Trust me, your youth ministry needs to be online.  Here are a few posts to help you, Developing a Social Media StrategyTimeline for Facebook Pages: The Almost Complete Guide.  I run into youth pastors all over who have no idea how to use technology well.  I am not asking you to be an expert, but you need to have a understanding of how to leverage technology for your youth ministry.

2. 88% of teens keep in touch with friends they can’t see regularly.  I love seeing teens connect all over the world.  It really doesn’t matter today where you live.  I think technology helps teens stay connect at places like camp, and retreats.  It is a easy way to keep a connection open.

What else stands out to you?  How do you connect with students in the digital world?
