Among kids, she has found over 60 percent adoption in several large cities. Among kids who use the net, 78 percent use the net at home — a number that rises to 90 percent in Beijing. 67 percent use the net at a friend’s home, 50 percent at school, 42 percent at parents’ office, and only 30 percent at an Internet cafe.
In smaller cities, almost 2/3 of kids who use the net use it at cyber cafes. So monitoring or closure of cyber cafes will have a disproportionate effect on migrant youth and kids in small cities.
Boys use the net somewhat more than girls. In fact, the typical user is a male student in high school, a good family income, good income, computer at both home and school, and most likely living in Beijing Guangzhou.
