Facebook users could consider mobile recycling.

Mobile recycling could be an option worth considering for consumers that would like to access social networking sites while on the go.

A new smartphone with mobile internet could be an upgrade option that is attainable with the money received from selling an old handset.

According to recent research from company InSites Consulting, 72 per cent of people who use the internet are part of at least one social networking site. This translates to 940 million users worldwide.

Daniel Chubb, chief executive officer at Dansway Communications and Online Social Media, suggested that at the moment people are making use of Facebook and Twitter more times in a day than they use the telephone.

He said: "It is not like this for everyone, but the younger generation certainly cannot live without social media and using Facebook to chat to friends and game together."

Facebook is the best known social networking website in this country, with 98 per cent of the users asked knowing it by name, InSites Consulting found.
