Continuing our preview of GWI’s new Teens report (you can download a free summary here), today we focus on the top ten mobile internet behaviors among 16-19 year olds.

Over two thirds of teens who use the mobile internet are watching video clips each month – a figure which puts them very slightly ahead of the wider mobile population. Teens also have small leads for uploading photos and managing social networks.

However, this pattern is far from universal: they are behind other mobile users for checking the weather, using webmail and searching for products to buy. Once again, then, the importance of sharing, networking and consuming content for this demographic is clear.
