The introduction of the internet was a groundbreaking event in human history, as it opened new doors to the world and facilitated countless advancements in technology and other industries. Hence, as it became more accessible and available to a larger audience, the way people lived their lives changed drastically due to the unlimited amount of information available right at their fingertips. This privilege grew in convenience when mobile phones became capable of performing these tasks, creating an even more accessible gateway to information and causing yet another revolution in the way people live their lives.
Being able to do almost everything through online channels is no longer a luxury, it has become mainstream. The world is moving toward mobile devices, and you can see the takeover with these mind-blowing statistics:
- A majority (62.9%) of the world population not only has a mobile device, but has a smartphone.
- Over half of the world’s overall web traffic comes from mobile devices.
- The amount of emails opened on mobile devices grew from 29% to 55% since 2012.
These are just a few of the numerous impacts that mobile devices have had in recent years. Here’s why this industry has witnessed such rapid, exponential growth:
Try to think about a list of tasks you perform in a day. How many of those tasks could have been done without access to the internet? Not that many, right?
This shows that being able to perform these tasks, and having access to the colossal source of information that the internet offers, is no longer a ”nice to have”, but a necessity. As people’s lifestyles become less stationary, so do their computer needs; they must be able to have full access to the internet at every place, and at any time.
This goes hand-in-hand with convenience. Since we have greater access to our mobile devices, as compared to our computers, it comes as no surprise that using mobile devices speeds things up. In addition, due to the high demand for mobile-friendly platforms, companies have developed state-of-the-art apps that are significantly faster and more user-friendly than desktop websites.
The ease of use that mobile devices have brought has increased the number of people who use the internet. Therefore, a larger amount of worldwide communication is done through this means, rather than traditional phone calls or emails, or even the least convenient, yet historically most effective option: face-to-face meetings. This increase in both the amount and quality of communication has resulted in people’s more efficient steps toward reaching their goals.
