Your tablet loves Mad Men: new report explores the multi-screen reality

Econsultancy has just finished a new report, The Multi-Screen Marketer, written on behalf of the Interactive Advertising Bureau and based on a survey to over 1,800 consumers.

The goal was to find out how they use a second screen while watching television and to help us understand the impact of these behaviors on advertising and marketing.

There's no shortage of research on the topic, so we focused on areas that believe to be the least examined (and most useful), including how different types of content correlate with multi-tasking, how the distraction of the second screen affects advertiser awareness and what consumers expect from their TV experience in the future.


73% of smartphone owners use a social networking app on a daily basis

Almost three quarters (73%) of smartphone owners use a social networking app on a daily basis and a further 19% at least weekly, according to a survey by Lightspeed Research.

Google skips past general mobile ads, goes directly to smartphones

If there were any doubts about the growing potential of the smartphone ad market, Google would like to put them to rest. The search giant announced plans this week to start serving richer media ads to smartphones.

By focusing on more more real estate grabbing ads for HTML-enabled phones instead of creating mobiles ads that will be uniform across mobile platforms, Google is betting on the future of smartphones and trying to establish its dominance over the mobile ad market. For a company trying to make a play for the display ad market, this could help it along the way.

The mobile internet really does exist: comScore

If you cry wolf too many times, people are apt to dismiss you. The mobile internet is the boy who cried wolf.

For years, many have predicted its rapid rise, and massive revenues. Yet by in large we've all been disappointed. Year after year new developments have been made but a mobile internet that's as important as many believed it would be hasn't shown up.
