Does this hold true: More devices = more news?
The research above suggests that people do not simply replace news intake on one device with another, but instead indicates a trend in which people increase their news consumption as they increase their supply of mobile devices. 34% of computer news consumers also get news on a smartphone and 17% on a tablet, and 27% of smartphone users also get news on a tablet.
This reinforces the study (shown below) that 31% of tablet news users claimed to have spent more time getting news on their tablets, and 43% claimed that the tablet has allowed them to add to the amount of news they consume.
With these studies, we can see that the advances of mobile technology is allowing us easier access to news consumption, and that we not only recognize this but that we act upon it by actually spending more time on news.
Have you found yourself spending more time on news with your phone/tablet?
