Average Teen Texts More Than 3,000 Times Monthly

…and I thought I texted a lot! According to recent studies, the average teenager sends over 3,000 texts per month.

From Mashable:

According to a new study from Nielsen, our society has gone mad with texting, data usage and app downloads. Nielsen analyzed the mobile data habits of over 60,000 mobile subscribers and surveyed over 3,000 teens during April, May and June of this year. The numbers they came up with are astounding.

There’s more, though: teen females send an incredible 4,050 text per month, while teen males send an average of 2,539 texts. Teens are sending 8 percent more texts than they were this time last year.

    The sad part is that alot of Teens don’t even know how to SPELL correctly in this day and age. I see it all the time all over “Facebook”, “MySpace”, etc— even on Employment Applications. It’s pathetic how Kids are growing-up and “living” on all this stuff, and their abilities in learning and using good Spelling, Writing and Grammar skills are decreasing and have become shameful.
