College Student Tech Use Update

Brad M. Griffin | Aug 18, 2011

You may have seen this infographic circulating last week about college students and technology. With the new school year upon us, this is a fascinating peek into the tech use of emerging adults in school.

A couple of interesting points:

  • Going without electronic media can result in symptoms of addiction withdrawal for college students.
  • 75% say they wouldnt be able to study without technology.
  • 181 minutes a day are spent texting. Thats three hours. Texting.

As always, we need to take stats with grains of salt, but this is an interesting take on media use in this demographic.

What do you think?
