In reading our daily e-newspaper on Zite, we came across this interesting article on how the web is getting younger. Some of the statistics are shocking. Tell us what you think.
Technology and internet have revolutionized a lot over the past 15 years and with millennials now rushing to social networking sites and smart devices, it’s a constantly evolving world. The below infographic by webpagefx team takes a closer look at how the internet is becoming younger and younger everyday, how teens are using the internet and the impact teenagers have had.
Key stats from visual:
88 percent of 18 – 29 years old now use social media.
93 percent of 30 – 49 years old own a cell phone.
Almost 72 percent between ages 50 – 64 send text messages.
Teens blogging mojo down since 2006, from 28 percent to 14 percent perhaps due to shorter attention spans, or the ability to post more quickly on social media.
Nearly, 4 out of 10 teens report they are “addicted” to their smartphone device.
Despite 13 being the minimum age to have a Facebook business page, there are more than 5 million users under age 10.
