Seven in XX adults ages XX-XX are engaged in at least one other activity while watching TV during primetime, according to Media Behavior Institute data cited by Nielsen. Eight in XX viewers who watch at noon are also doing other activities.
In terms of media used concurrently with television, social networks are the media most likely to be used while watching either live TV or shows recorded on DVR, according to Media Behavior Institute data cited.
In many cases this reflects viewers discussing what they're viewing with their social network connections. Print, mobile for talk and/or text, and Internet are all equally likely to be used while watching TV (about XX% of viewers use each). Fewer use these media while watching DVR-recorded programs, with the exception of print, which is used as often as while watching live TV.
Four in XX owners of smartphones (XX%) or tablets (XX%) use these devices every day while watching TV. The top use of smartphones or tablets while watching TV is checking email; viewers are just as likely to check email during the program they're watching as they are during commercial breaks. Women are more likely than men to use their mobile devices to visit social networks, while men are more likely than women to use theirs to check sports scores (reflecting the gender skews of these activities overall).
Although women make up the majority (XX%) of social network users, men comprise XX% of those who talk about TV programs on social networks.
Consumers are becoming increasingly device-agnostic in how they use media, whether it's for communication, information-gathering, or entertainment. As their options expand, and as the devices themselves become ever-more-multifunctional, people are starting to use whatever is most convenient or otherwise best suited to the needs of the moment.
Although computers still account for more than XX% of online traffic, that is changing rapidly, according to comScore. Globally, the U.S. has the second-highest proportion of Internet traffic (measured as browser-based page views) coming from sources other than computers (X.X%); Singapore is highest, at X.X%. U.S. Internet traffic from non-computer sources grew X% between May and August 2011 (calculations by RESEARCH ALERT).
Mobile phones account for the majority of non-computer Internet traffic, but tablets are quickly gaining ground. In May 2011, tablets accounted for XX% of non-computer traffic; by August, their share had risen to XX%.
Asian Americans are more likely than Americans of other races to watch TV or go online on a computer while also accessing the Internet on a cell phone, according to Luth Research data cited in "Profiles of the U.S. Simultaneous Media User," from EPM Communications, publisher of RESEARCH ALERT. Hispanics are more likely than non-Hispanics to watch TV, go online via computer, or listen to radio while using their cell phones to talk or text. Women are XX% more likely than men to watch TV while talking or texting on a cell phone, and XX% more likely to access the Internet via computer while talking or texting, according to Luth Research data cited (calculations by RESEARCH ALERT).
