A roundup on journalism and cyberculture follows:
Late last week, the Federal Communications Commission announced it was seeking public input on draft rules that would codify and supplement existing Internet openness principles. This was another chapter in the ongoing “Net neutrality” debate.
Some 19% of internet users now say they use Twitter or another service to share updates about themselves, or to see updates about others. This represents a significant increase over previous surveys in December 2008 and April 2009, when 11% of internet users said they use a status-update service.
Three groups of internet users are mainly responsible for driving the growth of this activity: social network website users, mobile internet users (those go online with a laptop, mp3 player, game console, or other device), and young adults under age 44.
The report has garnered a lot of attention, some of it focused on the question we use to measure this activity: “Do you ever use Twitter or another service to share updates about yourself or to see updates about others?” In response, we have published a commentary discussing our choices in question wording and the challenges of measuring a rapidly changing industry.
