Here is our weekly infographic.  I am always curious how teenagers are communicate in a digital world.  Teenagers are adapting quickly to new forms of communication.  This is one reason why it is so important for youth workers to stay relevant, and current on what they use, and how they communicate to teenagers.

Here are a few things that stand out to me from this infographic called: How American Teens Communicate.  

1. 93% of teens use a phone.  I am starting to understand hot crucial it is to develop a texting strategy for your youth ministry.  I use to think that facebook and twitter was crucial, but I am now realizing how effective and important it is to have a strategy to mass text your youth ministry.

2. Email is still king.  This is still a shocker to me.  I didn’t think anyone used email any more.  Especially not 93% of teenagers.  Again it is important to have a strategy for developing a mailing list.  I recommend using mailchimp.  You can read about that from my free ebook called, 5 Ways to Communicate Effectively in a Digital World.
