Mobile devices are altering family life in Mexico, according to a first-of-its-kind study conducted by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and Common Sense that examines device use, habits, and attitudes of Mexican teens and their parents. More Mexican parents expressed concern about their teens' use of mobile devices, and more teens reported feeling distracted and "addicted" to their phones than families in three other countries: the United States, Japan, and the United Kingdom.

Early in the digital era, Hispanics lagged significantly in internet access, but that’s changed mainly due to smartphone adoption. These days, Hispanics are avid users of social media and digital video—though they do lag behind in having home broadband.

As the share of Americans who say they own a smartphone has increased dramatically over the past decade – from 35% in 2011 to 81% in 2019 – a new Pew Research Center survey finds that the way many people choose to go online is markedly different than in previous years.

For the first time ever, US consumers will spend more time using their mobile devices than watching TV, with smartphone use dominating that time spent.

The research revealed the human brain needs 400 milliseconds (or 4/10th of a second or less than ½ second), to engage with mobile advertising and trigger an imprint, positive or negative. This means consumer time and attention can´t be taken for granted. Essentially, by the time a consumer blinks, their brain has already seen and processed a mobile ad. And more so, by the time it takes for their heart to beat once, they have very likely formed an emotional response (under 7/10ths of a second).

As the industry trade body focused on architecting the future of marketing, the Mobile Marketing Association (MMA), announced the results of a Cognition Neuroscience Research project. In collaboration with The Advertising Research Foundation (The ARF) and Neurons Inc., the MMA set out to understand how consumers process information in a mobile environment.

Because of in-app ad spend's recent surge, getting accurate in-app viewability measurements is a big deal for mobile marketers. We forecast that $77.03 billion will be spent on in-app advertising in the US this year, up 25.1% over 2018.

With newer generations coming into the consumer fold, the U.S.’ mosaic of buyers grows more diverse. As such, measuring these audiences has become increasingly pertinent—not only because of the value of representation, but because these audiences are helping to shape the future of how we consume and communicate. Women and multicultural consumers have become a driving force in tech and media, particularly when it comes to handheld devices. Mobile devices’ avenues for content and their wide availability are giving power to these diverse groups.
