Humans are inherently social creatures. Once upon a time we’d share our collection of rocks and show off our animal skins, and now that cassettes have died a death and mix CDs never held the same appeal, we share things that are important to us digitally, and at the click of a button.

According to a recent survey by market researchers BrainJuicer for mobile network Three, mobiles are our modern day mix tapes, with 12 million Britons using them to share and receive content every week, and with 67 million pieces of content being shared every week.
