Mobile users: Who are they, how many are there, and what are they doing?
The infographic below comes from The Growth of Mobile Marketing and Tagging. While the idea here is to show that the use of mobile devices and smartphones is increasing, I was surprised at a few things: Only a little more than a quarter of the world’s cell phones are smartphones? The number one purpose for using a cell phone is to play games? Only 33% of Facebook users use Facebook mobile? Some surprises here.
Although the headline here is completely misleading (in that the story doesn’t say Facebook has caused more divorces, but simply provided more evidence for divorce lawyers), the stats are interesting. It’s also more proof that people give absolutely no thought to what they’re posting online or who may see it.
