Selling an old mobile could allow consumers to do more.

The popularity of mobile internet could be set to increase as more people sell an old mobile and upgrade to a new handset, if recent suggestions are anything to go by.

Recent statistics from mobile measurement firm Ground Truth found that social networking takes up more than half the time spent on mobile internet by users.

It was also revealed that users of mobile-specific social networking sites are more engaged than users of PC-based networks.

Daniel Chubb, chief executive officer at Dansway Communications and Online Social Media, suggested that new mobile devices and apps will help social networking take another jump.

"Smartphones will bring billions of impressions that the desktop computer cannot. The boost is coming to take things to a whole new level," he said.

InSites Consulting recently revealed findings suggesting that across the world Facebook remains the most popular online platform, with 51 per cent of internet users accessing the site.
