The students…they’re getting smarter.

Data note: One of our recent teens reports found that half of teens send 50 or more text messages a day, or 1,500 texts a  month, and one in three send more than 100 texts a day, or more than  3,000 texts a month. 
However, when it comes to possession of a mobile phone during the school day, just 12% of teens with cell phones say that they can have a cell phone at their school at all times. A majority of teens (62%) say that they can have a cell phone at school but not in class, and another quarter (24%) attend schools that forbid cell phones altogether.

The cell phone is no longer just a communication device – it’s our most personal computer. While its original benefit came from providing a basic channel of access to personal contacts, the addition of functionality in the form of apps and the mobile web have squeezed actual communication down to a much smaller percentage of our activity. Phones no longer merely connect us to people; as their available features grow more complex, customizable, and personal, they connect us to ourselves.

Our director, Lee Rainie, recently spoke with ScribeMedia.org at the ARF audience measurement conference. In this video, Lee talks about the three revolutions that are disrupting the way people communicate and view content (the Internet Revolution, the Mobile Revolution, and the Social Network Revolution), as well as trends in methods of news consumption in America.
