A new survey Britain reveals that young people spend 27 hours a week online. This figure has trebled the past decade. Britain's communications watchdog Ofcom conducted the study thousands 16- to 24-year-olds as part its Media Use and Attitudes 2015 report. Ofcom found that while most online content is still being accessed computers, the proportion access via mobile devices is rapidly catching up. Two thirds adults now regularly use a smartphone or tablet. Online content has also changed considerably the past ten years. Today, people are spending a lot more time watching video clips, playing games, using instant messaging and checking social media accounts.

An industry expert, Toby Syfret, explained why more people are spending more time online. He said: "New technologies are opening a myriad other possibilities young people. It's not just watching content. They're messaging friends and texting the same time. Inevitably, as the younger generation gets older and they set their own home, TV viewing consumption will be affected." Over a quarter young people now watch TV shows and movies online instead of televisions. Mr Syfret added: "A 40-inch television screen offers quality you can't get a tablet or smartphone, so televisions are never going to become unimportant."
