Britain's communications watchdog Ofcom conductedthe study on thousands of 16- to 24-year-olds as part of its Media Use and Attitudes 2015report. Ofcom found that while most online content is still being accessed on computers, theproportion of access via mobile devices is rapidly catching up. Two thirds of adults nowregularly use a smartphone or tablet. Online content has also changed considerably in the pastten years. Today, people are spending a lot more time on watching video clips, playinggames, 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 up a myriad of other possibilities for young people.It's not just watching content. They're messaging friends and texting at the same time. Inevitably, as the younger generation gets older and they set up their own home, TV viewingconsumption will be affected." Over a quarter of young people now watch TV shows andmovies online instead of on televisions. Mr Syfret added: "A 40-inch television screen offersquality you can't get from a tablet or smartphone, so televisions are never going to becomeunimportant."
