Teen Texting Fever May Rage On Into Adulthood
U.S. teenagers are sending or receiving an average of 3,339 text messages a month, more than six every hour they’re awake, according to a study released Thursday by Nielsen. Teen girls aged 13 to 17 were the most-active users, receiving 4,050 texts per month. Teen boys outpaced other male age groups, receiving an average of 2,539 texts per month.
One question that arises is whether this generation will give up its high-texting behavior as it leaves its teenage years behind.
