TV is no longer a first priority
42% of Americans are no longer sitting back and watching TV only; they are perusing their tablets while 40% are on mobile phones. I do this too. It’s almost second nature to have the TV on, but it’s not a priority anymore. It’s something that may be on in the background but the computer is becoming first priority. Now even more so with tablets and smart phones TV is falling to the wayside. Social Media might be helping TV, but it’s no longer the first priority for home entertainment.
A very interesting number to take away from this data and also the report is that the fastest growing demographic for social media use currently is the 65+ age group. It grow almost 50% in just the last few years. Now part of that can be the resilience of the baby boomer generation to adopt new social technologies but I think many are starting to realize the raw power that online social communication can bring to a business or even on a personal level.
