Is Mobile Affecting When We Read?Posted: January 21, 2011
“Readers want to consume content in a comfortable place, on their own time and mobile devices are making it possible for readers to take control once more”
An interesting article via Is Mobile Affecting When We Read? « Read It Later Blog.
Personally, I am waiting for the article that links this with the effect on content/the way we communicate.
Could this perhaps be the start of a switch back to longer form?
iPad owners no longer do most of their reading on their computers, they are saving it for their ‘personal prime time’
We are bombarded with articles/content all day long
We save articles for later reading all day long, decreasing in the evening
We consume (saved) articles on our computer all day long with a drop during the home commute and a slight rise in the evening
iPhone users mostly consume saved articles on the way into work, during coffee, during the commute home and at bed time (no surprises there)
