  • CROSS-SCREEN CONSUMER BEHAVIOR: DECODED
  • Visit www.millennialmedia.com/research for more. 2 The online, connected digital universe that accesses the internet via PC and mobile devices is growing, and will continue to grow as device adoption, multiple device ownership, and access to faster network connections develop around the globe. Consumers are becoming increasingly comfortable moving across a number of devices to stay connected and consume content. In fact, consumers often complete tasks and consume media across multiple devices throughout a single day. As a result, the intersection of these trends has changed the way users connect. Now, the next phase in this evolution is how brands become more strategic with mobile and“chase the rabbit,”aligning advertising and messaging when users“hop”from device to device. The challenge for marketers is to understand how to communicate effectively with today’s cross-screen customers and uncover the right opportunities to reach them. This report is designed to educate brands and marketers on the new world of cross-screen users; who they are, the types of content they are consuming, and how they are most likely to use a specific device (over another). The statistics and data are becoming quite compelling for a mobile-led world. For example, of women aged 25-49, 80% are cross-screen users and 11% are mobile-only users, making this demographic the largest spending time on mobile. Takeaway: We live in a world of multi-screens, multi-platforms, and multi-devices – from smartphones to connected TVs to phablets to wearables – and new users and applications are emerging to help maintain the growth of how we are connecting with consumers in new ways. The messaging and marketing across these devices still needs to be clear, consistent, and engaging. Because, however you refer to it, it’s still about creating consistent experiences, independent of the mediums we use in our daily lives. The insights here are based upon analysis of mobile measurement firm comScore’s Multi-Platform product, and Millennial Media’s global platform observations across thousands of mobile ad campaigns. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Additional findings: The total digital universe that accesses the internet via PC or mobile device has grown four percent in the last year to 201 million users. The mobile-only user base has grown at 9x this rate and PC-only users have decreased at 11x this rate. PC & Mobile users ages 18-24 grew nine percentage points in the year, while their time spent on smartphones grew 20%. Mobile technology is helping baby boomers jump to a mobile only (and non-PC) world. Mobile users aged 50+ have grown their number of cross-device users in the last year by 19%, while the number of aged 50+ PC-only users decreased 19%.

  • Time spent across devices varies by content. For some categories, the majority of time spent is on PC, while other content is accessed on mobile first. Regardless of the mix of devices, digital users are accessing all types of content across different screens. Six content categories see 50% or more of their time from mobile devices. Based on 2013 data, Retail content was previously accessed via primarily PC, but recently crossed over to see the majority of time spent in this category on mobile. Health, News, and Sports content are also poised for a mobile majority.

  • We’ve seen how engagement varies by demographic and content, and now we’ll combine the two to see how different demographic groups spend their time in certain content categories across devices. Certain key groups skew more heavily towards mobile for certain content, while the opposite is true for others.
