Common Sense Media surveyed 1,000 teens and 1,000 parents of teens to learn about how teens are using social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace (“ Teens Show, Tell Too Much Online,” San Francisco Chronicle, August 10, 2009). The two samples were independently selected and were chosen in a way that makes it reason-able to regard them as representative of American teens and parents of American teens. When asked if they check their online social networking sites more than 10 times a day, 220 of the teens surveyed said yes. When parents of teens were asked if their teen checks his or her site more than 10 times a day, 40 said yes. The researchers used these data to conclude that there was evidence that the proportion of all parents who think their teen checks a social networking site more than 10 times a day is less than the proportion of all teens who report that they check the sites more than 10 times a day.
