Teen and Tween Media Behavior Differs

The Nielsen Company announced some of the findings of an in-depth study, “Kids on the Go: Mobile Usage by U.S. Teens and Tweens,” on the mobile media and cross media behavior of U.S. “tweens” (ages 8-12), finding that 5% of tweens access the Internet over their phone each month.

While 41% of tween mobile Internet users say they do so while commuting or traveling (to school, for example), mobile content such as the Internet is also a social medium for this audience. 26% of tween mobile Internet users say they access the web while at a friend’s house and 17% say they do so at social events.
