Mobile Internet Usage has taken over!

New stats from comScore show in the last 4 years Smartphone usage
is up 394% and tablet usage is up an amazing 1,721%. These mobile
platforms combine to account for 60% of time spent online with
digital media.

Interestingly, while mobile usage is greater than desktop usage,
comScore reports that there is no evidence that desktop use has
actually declined. Desktop usage has also increased in the last
few years.

What has happened is that users' total time spent on the Internet
has in fact doubled in the past three years. People are spending
more and more time online.
