New report: Special focus on millennials and their relationship with reading and libraries.

Millennials are more likely than older adults to have used a library website in the past year, and are just as likely to have read a book, but they are among the least likely to say that libraries are important: just 19% say their library’s closing would have a major impact on them.

For 3 years, the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project has been studying Americans’ relationships with public libraries in the digital age. Here, we’ve boiled it all down to 39 shareable slides.

Many library staff members say they see the role of a public library enabling access to information, regardless of format.
Some 77% of Americans now think it is “very important” for public libraries to provide free access to computers and the internet to the community. (For comparison, 80% of Americans say the same thing about books.)

Interesting.
It's Apple rumor season--really, when is it not?--and that means it's also the season of mockups. But the next time you see an appealing iWatch mockup, keep in mind how deeply, deeply wrong most of us have been at guessing what the future of Apple might look like.

91% of adults in a new survey “agree” or “strongly agree” that consumers have lost control over how personal information is collected and used by companies.

Huge new report on public perceptions of privacy in America just released ...
A majority of Americans feel that their privacy is being challenged along such core dimensions as the security of their personal information and their ability to retain confidentiality.

Nearly 25 years after the birth of the world wide web, most Americans have computers and internet access, but the nation remains a patchwork of connectivity, with some metro areas full of high-speed connections and other areas much less plugged in.

Overall, 84% of U.S. households own a computer, and 73% have a computer with a broadband connection to the internet. 

Among the regions where the highest share of households have broadband connections are relatively small but college-heavy metro areas such as:

Boulder (85%)
Lawrence, Kan. (83%)
State College, Pa. (81%)

A new case study finds Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms did not provide new outlets for discussion of the Snowden-NSA revelations. In fact, people were less likely to discuss these issues on social media than they were in person. If people thought their friends disagreed with them, they were less likely to want to discuss the issues at all.

About 2 in 5 (41%) of U.S. households had only wireless phones in the second half of 2013, according to a report released today by the National Center for Health Statistics. 

Nearly two-thirds (65.7%) of 25- to 29-year-olds, 59.7% of 30- to 34-year-olds, and 53% of 18- to 24-year-olds live in wireless-only households, according to the center. 
Two of every five U.S. households have no landline phones, but the growth rate of cord-cutting slowed last year.

By 2025 will there be significant changes for the worse and hindrances to the ways in which people get and share content online compared with the way globally networked people can operate online today?

65% of tech experts said no, and 35% said yes. More of their thoughts on future Net threats: http://pewrsr.ch/1riDEsR
