A new Pew Research Center study shows a significant age divide in the use of smart phones to access Internet video.
Three-quarters of younger smartphone owners (75%) indicated using their device to watch videos at least once during a one-week study period, compared with 46% of those 30-49 and only 31% of those 50-plus in the same time period.
Overall, half the smartphone users surveyed, of all ages, said they used their phones to watch video at least once a week, though that was trumped by the number of respondents who used their devices for texting (97%), surfing the Internet (89%), emailing (88%), social networking (75%), taking photos or video (60%), and even making phone calls (92%).
