(NEW YORK) -- Mobile devices are used by people on the go, and also apparently by people who are going. A recent survey of 1,000 people by the marketing agency 11mark found 75 percent of Americans have used their mobile devices to talk, text, shop, use apps or simply surf the Web while on the toilet.
Among those between the ages of 28 and 35, the percentage is 91 percent. For those 65 and older, just 47 percent say they've used their devices on the toilet.
The survey also found:
-- 25 percent of Americans say they will not go to the bathroom without their devices.
-- 63 percent have answered calls while on the toilet, while 41 percent have called someone else.
-- 16 percent of the 28-35 age group have made online purchases while on the porcelain throne, compared to 8 percent of those 65 and older.
-- 20 percent of males and 13 percent of females have joined a conference call while on the toilet.
-- People with children are more likely to chat on the phone while on the john than those without kids.
-- Single people are far more likely than people with partners to text on the toilet.
-- If a person is taking or making a call while on the toilet, they are most likely doing so on a BlackBerry.
-- Using an app or playing on Facebook is most often done by someone on an iPhone.
