'Generation Text: Teens and Cell Phones'
Posted on February 17th 2012
You can't get your teenager off of the phone even if the 11th plague is occurring outside; it's also quite possible that your kid's mobile phone, and not you, is the recipient of adoration in your home. Take refuge: you are not alone. The latest data on mobile phone usage, released by Nielsen, indicates teens are the major purveyors of increased mobile activity. Not only has their MB usage risen significantly in the last year, so has their text messaging -- all explaining why their hearts may be lit aflame for their mobile devices.
Crushed? Read on to see why your teen may be one of many in "generation text." In fact, you can show your unending love for your teen by forwarding on this infographic; just remember, you'll want to send it to their mobile phone.
