Is Mobile Affecting When We Read?

 

 

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?

In summary:

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)
