Today at the Knight Digital Media Center site, I took another look at a new report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project about generational differences in tech gadget ownership and user.
The trends & implications I saw are:
- Picture-taking is the most popular non-voice cell activity, even more than texting! So why not do more with community-contributed pictures?
- Tablets are still a niche market. Right now, there are much bigger mobile fish to fry in terms of potential market size. Consider where your business interest really lie.
- MP3 players are especially popular with young adults, so consider doing more with podcasts and other audio content.
I discuss the details more over at my article on KDMC.
