An astounding 80 percent of the world’s population now has a mobile phone—and 84 percent is unwilling to go a single day without their phone. About 45 percent of Americans say they can’t go more than a few hours without checking their phones. In 2012 there were five billion mobile phones in the world—1.8 billion of these were smart phones.


Facebook now reaches 76 percent of the smartphone market, and it accounts for 23 percent of total time spent using apps each month.

The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive.

As smartphones are increasingly used, this infographic highlights in just what way we use our phones. 1 in 5 people check their phone every ten minutes... something tells me that the smartphone may be one of the biggest sources of modern distraction!

Had fun writing an update to one of my favorite books - The Cluetrain Manifesto. Here are highlights from the CoSoMo Manifesto:

* We (your customers) are POWERFUL beyond your wildest dream.
* Our (your customers') everyday needs are more than MET.
* Our (your customers') aspirational desires will never be satisfied.
* Greatness is the cost of the poker game you are playing.
* We can't tell You how to be GREAT, but sure know it when we see, feel or buy greatness.
* Our TIME is our most valuable resource, so don't waste it.
* We may know you better ONLINE than you know yourself, so be authentic and real.
* Together we are more powerful than either of us alone.

What about you? Have ideas we should add to the CoSoMo Manifesto? Share in comments and we will curate in. Marty
