Report: More youth use smartphones as route to Web

CHICAGO

That's having a big effect on how, and where, many young people are accessing the Web.

The survey, released Wednesday, finds that one in four young people say they are "cell-mostly" Internet users, a percentage that increases to about half when the phone is a smartphone.

In comparison, just 15 percent of adults said they access the Internet mostly by cellphone.

Text experts say these young "mobile surfers" will continue influence the way corporations do business and marketers advertise will only continue to evolve, as will the way mobile devices are monitored.
