About three-in-ten U.S. adults say they are ‘almost constantly’ online

Andrew Perrin and Madhu Kumar of Pew Research Center –

As smartphones and other mobile devices have become more widespread, 28% of American adults now report that they go online “almost constantly,” up from 21% in 2015, according to Pew Research Center.

Adults with mobile connectivity are especially likely to be online a lot.

Younger adults are at the vanguard of the constantly connected: Roughly half of 18- to 29-year-olds (48%) say they go online almost constantly and 46% go online multiple times per day.

By comparison, just 7% of those 65 and older go online almost constantly and 35% go online multiple times per day.
