12,532 views

Published on

Earlier in the year, we released our Q2 Consumer Sharing Trends Report along with the key takeaway: mobile sharing growth continues. In our latest Q4 2014 Consumer Sharing Trends Report, we’ve found that mobile sharing grew even more in the second half of the year. Since January 2014, overall mobile device sharing activity increased 28%. Much of this growth was driven by tablets, which experienced a 49% lift over last year and now represent 15% of total sharing activity. We can only expect tablet sharing to increase as the tablet market expands and more value-priced tablets enter the marketplace. Read more on our blog at http://shar.es/1bdPmR
