If youre reading this article on DeseretNews.com, youre not unlike most Americans, who are reading the news online.

The Pew Research Center recently released a study that looked into how people are reading the news.

Theres a generational divide, with 81 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds reading news online, while 10 percent read newspapers. That number drops as the ages rise, with 72 percent of 30- to 49-year-olds and 41 percent of 50- to 64-year-olds reading the news online.

About 63 percent of people 65 years and older read the news from a newspaper.

When it comes to technologys influence on Americas young adults, reading is not dead at least not the news. When asked whether one prefers to read, watch or listen to their news, younger adults are far more likely than older ones to opt for text, and most of that reading takes place on the web, according to Pew.
