As more churches turn to the internet and smartphone apps to get the word out about church events and programs, some Americans might not be getting the message—especially if they don’t have a lot of money.
Among Americans whose households earn less than $30,000 a year, a third don’t have smartphones, according to Pew Research. About half don’t have a computer or home broadband access.
One in 5 has access to the internet only through a smartphone.
By contrast, 8 in 10 Americans whose households earn between $30,000 and $99,000 have smartphones (81 percent), computers (87 percent), and home broadband (80 percent).
