New developments and curiosities from a changing global media landscape: People, Spaces, Deliberation brings trends and events to your attention that illustrate that tomorrow's media environment will look very different from today's, and will have little resemblance to yesterday's.

  • Younger people tend to be more online than older people, in both developed and developing countries.
  • In developing countries, 30% of those under the age of 25 use the Internet, compared to 23% of those 25 years and older.
  • At the same time, 70% of the under 25-year-olds-a total of 1.9 billion-are not online yet: a huge potential if developing countries can connect schools and increase school enrollment rates.
