Global – With the rise of emojis, mobile IM is making a comeback as the primary form of communication among members of Generations I and D.

  • Presented in conjunction with our Tech Futures report, The IM Crowd looks at teenagers' views on messaging
  • Features three teens from Japan, the UK and Venezuela

We continually hear in the media that teenagers are leaving Facebook in droves, but for our latest tribe LS:N Global spoke to three girls – Marcela Maiki Chacon (11), Emily Sanderson (15) and Honoka Tamura (18) – about what they think about social media and how they communicate with friends in the digital world.
