Pew survey on cellphone use: Why that matters to you
The journalism-tech blog 10,000 Words has A Journalist’s Quick Primer on Who Uses Cell Phones (and How)>. It’s based on a report by the Pew Research Center’s survey about how Americans use their cellphones.
There is a lot of information in that survey. Why is it important for you to know about who is using their phone and for what? Because we’re in the middle of a great migration from desktop computers to mobile devices by the people who are consuming the content you create.
I’m not going to pretend to be an expert to guide you through this stuff. I’m trying to educate myself on how this migration is changing what we do and how we do it. We’ll talk more about it in this space in the coming months.
Meantime, follow the links in that 10,000 Words post. It’s a good starting point.
