(5-12 years) and teenagers (13-18 years) are now the two largest
growth sectors of the Internet population, market research
group, Jupiter Communications said in Washington last week.
the two sectors will account for some US$1.3bil (RM4.9bil)
worth of e-commerce by 2002.
by 2002 some 21.9 million children and 16.6 million teens
would be online.
they will directly account for less than 5% of the online
shopping revenues forecast for 2002, the research group said
that will increase.
kids are sophisticated and see the Internet as a preferred
tool for information gathering -- commerce is a natural progression,''
Jupiter analyst Anya Sacharow said. -- AFN
