2012 Global State of Mobile Etiquette and Digital Sharing
Oct. 8, 2012 A recent Intel multi-country study on the state of mobile etiquette and digital sharing found that the majority of adults and teens around the world are sharing online and feel better connected to family and friends. However, an overwhelming majority of adults and teens think others divulge too much information about themselves online, and at least 86 percent of survey respondents report that they wish people thought more about how others will perceive them when sharing information online.
The survey, conducted by Ipsos Observer and commissioned by Intel Corporation, examined the current state of mobile etiquette and evaluated how adults and teens in eight countries share and consume information online and how digital sharing impacts culture and relationships. The study was conducted in the United States in March and a follow-up study was conducted from June to August in Australia, Brazil, China (adults only), France, India, Indonesia and Japan.
As an innovator behind the technology powering mobile Internet-enabled devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops and Ultrabook systems) and mobile lifestyles, Intel is on a continued quest to understand how consumers are using their mobile devices, how they create, share and consume information online and how it impacts their lives and personal relationships. These insights help drive Intel innovation and development of new technologies that aim to enhance the overall mobile experience.
The latest edition of Intels annual Mobile Etiquette survey uncovered interesting findings on the different ways we use our mobile technology to create, share and consume content online and how those behaviors impact relationships and culture overall.
