This infographic, by CellPhones.org, gives a variety of facts about text messaging in a very fun design. Setup to look like an iPhone text conversation, the infographic lists 14 facts that show just how much money the texting industry is worth. Some interesting facts include the following:

  • Text message usage is up to 72% of cell phone users in 2010, from 65% in 2009
  • Of 18-29 year olds, 95% text message
  • The average U.S. cell phone user sends 17 text messages per day
  • If you text while you drive, you are 23 times more likely to get into an accident
  • 10% of texters over 25 believe that texting is acceptable when having sex
  • 3 in 5 teens say that sexting is not safe, but 1 in 5 do it anyways
  • The average teen sends 10 texts per hour during the day
  • Research done in 1985 determined the 160 character limit of text messaging
  • Text messaging earns $60-70 billion every year for phone companies

While there are a lot of fun facts in this infographic, the majority of it is text. It would be great if there was more imagery to make all of the information a little bit easier to digest.
