Few Checking In

. . . Or so it would seem from the latest Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project on cell phone activities.

According to the survey: "Only 8% of people who responded to the survey check in or share their location on their cell phone"

Other findings:

"Fully 91% of American adults own a cell phone and many use the devices for much more than phone calls. In our most recent nationally representative survey, we checked in on some of the most popular activities people perform on their cell phones and found:

  • 81% of cell phone owners send or receive text messages
  • 60% of cell phone owners access the internet
  • 52% send or receive email
  • 50% download apps
  • 49% get directions, recommendations, or other location-based information
  • 48% listen to music
  • 21% participate in a video call or video chat"

Well I'm still mayor of a few places . . . so there!
