Socialogue: Think Small

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Global - No matter where we are, we're always connected, with each of us using an average of 2.3 devices. So, when it comes to our technology products, small and portable is what we like. While most of us use mobile phones (82%), laptops, used by two-thirds  (66%), have surpassed the standard desktop computer (60%). And, 17% of us are already using tablets. Given the multiplicity of devices in use, it becomes increasingly important for brands to have an online presence that is optimized for computers, tablets and mobile phones, alike. Once upon a time, that would have been considered thinking big. Today, it’s just thinking smart.
