A new study suggests texting has increased dramatically to surpass other widely used forms of communication in popularity.
Los Angeles (WiredPRNews.com) – A new study suggests texting has grown to become the most popular communication form for teens in the U.S. As reported by Reuters, researchers with the Pew Internet and American Life Project found that one third of teens in the country who have cell phones text over 100 times daily.
Pew researcher Amanda Lenhart is quoted by Reuters as stating of the findings, “Texting is now the central hub of communication in the lives of teens today, and it has really skyrocketed in the last 18 months.”
Lenhart is further quoted as stating of the convenience of texting for young people, “We’ve kind of hit a tipping point where now teens expect other teens to respond to text messaging and to be available…There is definitely an element of text messaging that fits so seamlessly into their lives.”
