From Friday Morning Quarterback: A new study from Yahoo! and OMD Worldwide finds that globally, youths far prefer to get their music fix from the Internet than the radio. The study, entitled "Truly, Madly, Deeply Engaged: Global Youth, Media and Technology," looks at 13-24 year olds in 11 countries and their media habits. The researchers conclude that today's youth expect their media experiences to be highly personalized and tailored to their individual tastes.
The study finds that
globally, the Internet has shot past traditional radio as the place to find
music, especially outside of the U.S.
Additionally, music is no
longer solely associated with radio or CD buying, with personalized playlists,
downloading, podcasting and ringtones becoming commonplace.
