Numbers
All these numbers are very interesting. I have a doubt about this tho:
Consumer (internet) usage grew 31% in 2012, 24% in 2013, and 21% in 2014.
I thought the internet usage will go up and not down, as the years go by. Are these percentages taking in consideration the mobil market as well?

The mobile app is a dominant consumer contact point
Asksqn, you are correct, it's only just begun. But the pattern of direct interaction through a mobile appb  is the dominant pattern of the foreseeable future. Look for them to get more and more sophisticated, location aware and personalized.

Meeker's verdict isn't final just yet
>> [...] substituting new patterns of consumption has only just begun.<<

 

Particularly since a great majority of contemporary 30-somethings are embracing a lifestyle that is a lot more environmentally friendly than what havoc the Boomers wreaked on the planet.

Re: How do they do it?
Gary, the trick may be in using the mobile data plan only when there is no free WiFi around. Then it can last more. Otherwise, 2, 4, or 6 gigs is not enough, less for heavy users. -Susan

How do they do it?
I'm a dinosaur who interacts with the internet via a desktop. Most people's mobile data plans have 4-gigs download a month, and I probably go through that almost every day. How do they survive?.

Re: An example of user generated content
Charlie, that's an amazing example. 30 minutes average for visitor?! That's an in incredible amount of time and speaks to the need that it's filling. I wonder if Meeker used the word "disruption" or "disruptor" in her report, or is that now so cliche? Almost like "smartphone."

An example of user generated content
Wattpad, a site for self-publishing fiction writers, gets 40 million unique visitors a month, who average 30 minutes per visit to the site. Each minute of the day,the equivalent of 24 hours of reading material is posted to the site, with 90% of the traffic to the site coming off of mobile devices, according to Meeker's report..
