Seniors using cell phones are much less likely to use texts

From Mashable.com (September 24, 2013):

Commercials portraying grandparents using phones and tablets to Skype with their grandkids may be deceptive — in reality, only 3% of cell phone users over the age of 65 use their smartphones to video chat.

Statista’s chart, below, shows how cell phone use differs by age group. As you might expect, teens and 20-somethings are far more likely to rely on cell phones to check email, text and listen to music than any other age group.

Cell phone users ages 65 and over are one-third as likely to use the same technology as their younger counterparts.
