Communications and media as we know them are evolving at a rapid pace. Take social media, for example. Consumers are increasingly relying upon social media for their information – going to a company’s Facebook page, for example, before visiting a company’s website.
Led by the iPhone and now other smartphones (and devices such as the iPad), mobile web traffic is increasing exponentially and many expect it to surpass desktop web usage in the near future. So what does that mean for web site designers and advertisers?
Mobile internet usage today is exploding. The year-over-year numbers from January, 2008 to January 2009 showed over a doubling of usage. Since then, the introduction of new generations of "smartphones" such as the iPhone have stressed the mobile networks almost more than AT&T's and Verizon's combined $35 billion per year in mobile infrastructure investments can handle.
