About 74 percent of teens now have a social-networking page on Face Book or similar site, they noted.

Except for going to the movies or reading, all other daily media use has gone up during the last five years, the report found.

Children spend about four and one-half hours daily in front of the TV, about two and one-half hours listening to music, an hour and a half on the computer, about an hour and a quarter playing video games, and just 38 minutes reading.
