We live in a mobile yet connected world. Wherever we go – on the bus or train, in our car, at the grocery store or the gym – we can stay in touch and stay connected through our mobile devices. Research statistics (like those offered by Pew’s Internet & American Life Project) confirm what we see around us every day:
- 83% of Americans own some kind of cell phone;
- nearly half (46%) of American adults are smartphone owners as of February 2012;
- 19% of adults in the US own tablet computers (e.g., iPad, PlayBook, etc.)
Non-profits, charities and membership organizations want their supporters to stay in touch with them too. So it follows that as we move away from our desktop and laptop computers to mobile devices like Smartphones and tablets, organizations need to find ways to "mobile-ize" their interactions with supporters.
