66% of Americans aged 30-49 use text messaging

Young adults who are gadget owners are far more likely to report text messaging overall (81%), but are no more likely to report work-related messaging. However, fully 66% of those ages 30-49 use text messaging and 15% say that at least half of their exchanges throughout the day are work-related. Among employed text messaging users, 28% say they exchange text messages with friends and family at least once a day while at work, while just 17% exchange messages with colleagues, according to Pew Internet Project.
