Online & Digital Media News – One in four Canadian teens using ChatGPT

MTM Jr.’s latest study of media consumption amongst Canadian kids, aged 2-17, finds three in four teens (72%) are aware of generative AI tools like ChatGPT and one in four (25%) are using them on a monthly basis. In its sixth year, the study finds Snapchat is maintaining its popularity, with almost half of kids aged 7-17 (48%) having used it in the past month and 80% of users doing so on a daily basis. For the first time, MTM Jr. asked teens about their Snapchat scores and found that over half can identify what their “Snapscore” is. Video games also remain a staple for most kids, with four in five (79%) having played one in the past month. 

X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, is set to launch a dedicated smart TV app that will feature a trending video algorithm, AI-powered trending topics and a cross-device experience so users can start watching on their phone and continue watching on TV. The social platform’s video offerings currently include original programming hosted by former congresswoman and political commentator Tulsi Gabbard and former Fox Sports host Jim Rome.
