Pew: Use of smartphones and social media is common across most emerging economies

Pew (PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW!): Use of smartphones and social media is common across most emerging economies. “Large majorities in the 11 emerging and developing countries surveyed either own or share a mobile phone, and in every country it is much more common to own one’s own phone than to share it with someone else. In seven of these countries, half or more now use smartphones – and smartphone use is especially common among younger and more educated groups.”
