A new report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project: Teens and Mobile Phones.
The survey, done in late 2009, concluded that text messaging among teens is becoming increasingly popular, with the number of teens who ext daily going up from 38% to 54% in the last 18 months. And there are more messages too. Over half of teens send >50 texts a day (which works out to 1500 a month), and one third of teens send >100 texts a day (3000 a month). 14-17 year old girls lead the charge, with 13-14 year old boys trailing (I’ll resist the urge to crack a joke about boys and their social development).
