"Over 75% of teens now have a mobile phone," explains Craig Thompson, media coordinator for Retina-X Studios. "We want to show parents the dangers their teens could face and how to protect them. Armed with this information and these facts, parents can take precautions to help keep their teen cell phone users safer."

The collective research shown in the "Teens and Mobile Phones" infographic describes the number of teens who have cell phones, how they use their cell phones, and risks associated with their use of them. Teens are mainly using their cell phone for such things as texting, calling, and socializing. The Infographic also sheds light on the number of texts per day that the average teen sends. Parents can also see the problems associated with teen cell-phone usage, which include bullying and sexting.

"Some parents are not aware of this information, so we have made it readily available for sharing," adds Thompson. "Others are already aware of it, and many of them take action and use a monitoring program or parental controls to help protect their teen."
