The Rise of the Mobile Addict

Posted by & filed under Good Reads, Social Media, Technology.

I follow a blogger, librarian, consultant named Stephen Abrams who has a blogged named Stephen’s Lighthouse: Illuminating library industry trends, innovation and information. Many of his posts are items he’s currated from other websites. It’s a wonderful blog for anyone interested in the link between society and technology.  This specific post I’d like to share is about addiction to mobile devices and mobile applications. It pulls information from a 2013 Internet Trends Report.  It defines regular users, super users, and addicts. There is great detail on the demographics of ‘addicts’ and reports that this category is rapidly growing – and not just amongst college students!
