The Young Have the Most Fun with Mobile Video - eMarketer

The Young Have the Most Fun with Mobile Video - eMarketer | Movin' Ahead | Scoop.it
As tablet and smartphone adoption grow, video viewing is increasingly occurring via mobile platforms. According to a new eMarketer report, tablet and smartphone video viewers tend to be young. This is a signal that content owners who cater to millennials and young adults should prioritize their mobile video programming, if they haven't already done so.

Jeff Anderson | GSN's curator insight, August 19, 2014 3:02 PM

A February 2014 Rhythm NewMedia study on demographic trends in mobile video reached the following conclusions about millennials:


  • Nearly nine in 10 (89.6%) millennials watched smartphone video, and 76.8% viewed tablet video; those percentages were higher than for any other demographic group in the study.
  • Millennials watched more short-form content, entertainment news and user-generated content on smartphones than average.
  • Around four in five (77%) millennials viewed mobile video ads in exchange for free premium content; that figure was higher than for any other age group.


For content owners, these trends represent an opportunity to engage with hard-to-reach audiences.

David Collet's curator insight, August 19, 2014 8:41 PM

This is for youth entrepreneurs. It also follows up on a post I made yesterday with a comment about education. The future will see much more marketing being done through You Tube or whatever the flavour of the day is. And the format is dramatically different. Attention spans are much shorter. Interests are much more varied.

How to Write a Good Vision Statement | Movin' Ahead | Scoop.it

Strategic planning is much easier than many people realise.  If you have an intimate knowledge of your business and are able to think pragmatically about your strengths and weaknesses, you should be able to create a strategic plan fairly easily.

 

Take a deep-dive into each of the components and giving some tips on how to actually create them effectively.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 15, 1:48 AM

Strategic planning is of great importance in the classroom too. Both teachers and students need to plan their work. With the teacher it is about planning for the whole year, and for the student it could be about planning for his or her research paper for the term. In all cases, planning continues to be a factor that can spell success or failure! While, no doubt this article is aimed at the business world, I see its relevance in Education too!

Darilyn Evans's curator insight, January 15, 3:24 AM

A first step in benefits realisation is being sure of what we are trying to achieve.  This article is useful in giving a step-by-step process for creating a strategic vision that doesn't end up as some generic, jargon-filled statement that is uninspiring to staff and clients alike.

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, January 15, 3:40 PM

Strategic planning must give three products:
1. Address: Define which should be directed towards the organization (Vision, Vision and Values).
2. Focus: In what ways the organization (objectives and goals) will concentrate.
3. Alignment: Align all resources (financial, material and human) of the company.

Snapchat Is Now The #3 Social App Among Millennials | Movin' Ahead | Scoop.it

Snapchat is now the third most popular social app among millennials, according to a recent report by comScore, which finds that Snapchat has 32.9% penetration on these young users’ mobile phones, trailing only Instagram (43.1%) and Facebook (75.6%).

 

That means the app is more popular than Twitter, Pinterest, Vine, Google+ or Tumblr among the millennial demographic, which comScore defines as those between the ages of 18 and 34.
