U.S. Crushes Japan and Europe (in status updates, at least...)
Who needs the World Cup when you can demonstrate world domination via Facebook?
Americans were recently ranked #1 in accessing social media sites from mobile devices in a new study by comScore. The industry research firm compared mobile content use in the US, Japan and Europe - and the results gave everyone a little something to cheer about.
In nearly every other category besides social networking, the Japanese handily beat their American and European counterparts. Over 75% of mobile users in Japan browsed, accessed applications or downloaded content, running virtual circles around the 43.7% of U.S. users and 38.5% of Europeans.
While the Japanese mobile users were the "most connected" of the three markets, the Europeans proved to be texting machines, with 81.7 percent sending a text message in June, compared to 66.8 percent in the U.S. and just 40.1 percent in Japan.
