Facebook Makes Moves Toward Creator Networks
The much-anticipated internet trends report by Mary Meeker made its annual splash last month, unveiling both predictable and unpredictable insights about the current digital climate. While print consumption continues to decline at a rapid pace, digital consumption has not stopped its relentless growth. Meeker's report found that U.S. adults spent over five hours more a day consuming digital media in 2017 than they did in the previous year. More than half of those hours were spent on mobile. And as adults spend more time online, teens are not-so-shockingly way ahead. New data from Pew Research Center shows that 95% of teens have access to smartphones, and 45% of that group says they're "constantly" online.
