57% of college students use smart phones, but how? Texting: Nearly 100% text but only about 3/4th of students make calls every day. Social Media: Across the board, students use social media apps, including Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. Photos: The convenience of having a camera built right in to the phone means students are always grabbing pictures of what?s going on. Gaming: Students have their phones loaded with games to fill lulls in the day. Time-Wasting: Gone are the days when students would pull out a book or newspaper while waiting for the bus. Even when there?s no pressing reason, students whip out their phones at any spare moment.
