Australian Teens Top Internet Usage

Australian teenagers are spending up to 18 hours a week online, according to the latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. This was well above the nation’s average of 10 hours per week over the 2014-15 period. The most popular online activity for the demographic was social networking, used by 91% of those aged 15-19 years old.

The data also revealed the amount of Australian households with internet access had jumped from 83% in 2012-13 to 86% or 7.7 million homes in 2014-15. The figures are slightly lower for regional Australians compared to those in major cities, though you can expect to see the number climb with the launch of NBN’s Sky Muster satellite.

The most common reasons for using the internet were social media and banking, with 72% of Australians using those services respectively. 61% of users said they used the internet for purchasing goods and services and 60% went online for entertainment.

Young People Choosing Social Media over Driver’s License

 

 

The number of young people holding a driver’s license has been declining over the last 15 years in a trend being attributed to the rise of social media. According to data from VicRoads, the number of driver’s license holders under the age of 25 has declined from 77% in 2000-01 to 66% in 2012-13 with estimates the current number is even lower.

A more recent study from the US shows the trend is being echoed globally. Researchers from the University of Michigan reported that driver’s license holders between the ages of 20-24 had plummeted over the last decade with 82% in 2008, 79.7% in 2011 and 76.7% in 2014.

Researchers at Michigan University, believe that social media and digital communications are (in part) responsible for the decline in young drivers. The theory is that younger people are opting to connect with friends online through Facebook, SnapChat or Instagram and no longer feel the need for as much face-to-face connection.

The number of driver’s license holders in older demographics, 45 years and over, either remained consistent or increased. In 2014, for the first time recorded, there were more drivers aged over 70 than 20-24 year-olds, the seniors beating them by 1.3%.

Super connectivity is here and it’s shaping the next generation’s relationships. Read more about the latest technology news and trends in the MyNetFone blog.
