Watch It, Read It,Tweet It!

I am writing a different kind of post today, different in that I am sharing with my readers something that is so very timely and interesting but not necessarily only about the world of children's literature.  Please have a look at the infographic below, as it is a wealth of information dealing with our age of instant communication. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
InkHouse and GMI, a Lightspeed Research company, have created an infographic called:  Watch It, Read It or Tweet It: How Americans View and Share News, which explores how readers consume news.
The graphic features new research that delves into American news consumption. According to the survey, 60 percent of Americans read or watch 3 to 10 news stories a day. The research also revealed that 56 percent of those surveyed still pay for a print news subscription and 68 percent of those people subscribe to a local newspaper.

So where will all of this technology lead us? And what real meaning does it have for kids and their books? Quite a lot, with more to come. I'd love to hear from you.  After all, you've many ways to communicate...
