A survey shows that 16- to 24-year-olds spend over 27 hours a week online. This figure has trebled in 10 years. A communications group conducted the study as part of a media use and attitudes report. Most online content is accessed on computers, the use of mobile devices is quickly catching up. Two thirds of adults now use smart phones. People also spend more time watching videos, playing games, messaging and checking social media online.

An industry expert said new technologies are opening up countless possibilities for young people. He said it's not just watching content. He also said we are changing the way we watch TV. Over a quarter of young people watch TV online instead of on televisions. The expert said a large television screen offers quality you can't get from a tablet or smartphone. He said televisions would never become "unimportant".
