I get a constant flood of statistics reminding me how many mobile users there are in the world, but despite that, every now and again something pops up that makes me say … “what!”
Have a look at this infographic from CellPhones.org pulling together a range of stats about SMS usage in the US.
1: that an average teen sends 3000 messages a month!
That one I get … and am making a mental note to update my teen’s phone contract
2: that between 6 – 10% of interviewees thought it was OK to text while making love!
Doh … sorry. That one I just don’t get at all. Maybe I really am still a digital immigrant after all!
