In their January 2010 report on teen consumption of media, the Kaiser Family foundation (8) reported that the 8- to 18-year-olds surveyed spent an average of 7 hours and 38 minutes daily using media. The subjects used their cell phones for a variety of media purposes, not just for chatting with or texting peers. On a typical day, 8- to 18-year-olds reported spending an average of 49 minutes listening to music, playing games, or watching TV on their cell phones. Also, on a typical day, 46% of 8- to 18-year-olds reported sending text messages on a cell phone, and it is estimated that those who text send an average of 118 messages a day. On average, 7th-to-12th graders reported spending about 1½ hours per day engaged in sending and receiving texts. Thus, we see that over the past few years, there has been an explosion in the ownership and use of cell phones by children and teens, and, that, in a given day, teens are using their phones for a variety of purposes, not the least of which is to text peers.
