Youngsters spend nearly 2 and half more hours online on their smartphones than baby boomers, according to new research.
The data, from Global Web Index, looks at the amount of time these age groups are spending online on a mobile.
Although Millennials tend to spend the longest time online across most devices, it’s for mobiles where they really forge ahead of the older generations – clocking up a daily average of over 3 hours.
With the older generations having stronger attachments to more “traditional” devices like PCs/laptops, as well as a greater fondness for tablets, they lag considerably behind for time spent on mobile.
In fact, each day sees Millennials online on a mobile for over 4x as long as Boomers – offering further confirmation that Millennials really are the Mobile-First generation.
