Mobile internet mainly used for social networking

Social Networking Most Popular

Research firm CCS Insight has published an investigation into social networking use on mobile phones. The report found that a third of all young adults access social networking sites using their mobile phones.

The research, which explored the mobile usage of 16 to 35 year olds, confirmed that social networking sites take up the majority of sites visited on mobile internet.

Social media portals, such as Facebook, Bebo, MySpace and Twitter, have become increasingly popular in recent years. The report concludes that their popularity over mobile internet is a result of more young people owning handsets with internet access.

CCS Insight analyst Paulo Pescatore said:

"Forget music and video downloads, social networking is where it's at and Facebook is king of the hill.
