Teen Girls Text Nearly 1.5X As Teen Boys


Teens sure do love their texting. New data from Nielsen proves it.

According to an analysis of 65,000+ mobile subscribers’ phone bills, U.S. teens have tripled their data usage. In the third quarter of 2011, teens aged 13-17 averaged 320 MB of data per month. This number has increased 256% over the last year, and not surprisingly teens are are consuming data faster than any other age group. But when it comes to data usage, boys are consuming 382 MB per month while girls only use 266 MB. This is not the case when it comes to texting.
