Use Of Mobile Devices In Texting

Overall 49% of consumers use their mobile devices to test. A study by Merkle showed that the percent of opt ins drops off as age increases.

26% - All Respondents
30% - Ages 18 to 29
30% - Ages 30 to 39
26% - Ages 40 to 49
15% - Ages 50 to 59
7% - Ages 60 and older

Taking this down into racial ethnic groups:

36% - Afro-American
35% - Asian American
26% - Hispanic American
23% - White American

*Source Merkle of a sample of 3,281 adults ages 18 and older.

Larson Notes & Satire: Not too surprising here. Knowing how my kids would rather text than talk on the phone, rather than me who talks rather than texts. As for the ethnic percentages I would have had no idea, but looking at it I think we can see how different companies and what they sell can work mobile and text more to their advantage.

Note: If you’re reading this blog on a Ning that is “closing” or will be in (it looks like) July unless the owners want to pony up some cash. (Bad move on Nings part but it’s their system to do as they will) afterwards you can read our little blog @ or join
