Mobile devices have transformed our daily behavior through various apps. Now it’s also the fastest growing platform for media. With a vast user base of 1.75 billion users by the end of 2014, mobile is transforming the way media is digested on a daily basis. The average millennial user spends 18 hours a day viewing media, of which 5 hours is spent on viewing content generated by their peers. The traditional forms of media such as TV, radio and magazine are witnessing an increased decline in the time being spent on them. Social media, app downloads and finding information are some of the key factors expected to drive growth in mobile media next year.
