Walk into any restaurant these days, and what do you see? Groups of people sitting in a booth or at a table, all eyes shifted down, staring at their smartphones instead of talking to the people in front of them. Most of us have been “that person” at one time or another.
In this day and age, smartphones and tablets cannot be ignored. A few years ago, the vast majority of people read their emails from a computer, but more and more of us are using our mobile devices to access the Internet for just about anything – from reading email and blogs to shopping… and of, course, updating Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Mobile marketing statistics comparing over seven years of internet usage for the U.S. show that we now spend 51% percent of our online time on mobile devices, while desktop usage is 42%. On average, we check our smartphones 150 times per day!
