Mobile Shopping: 9 Out Of 10 Tablet Shoppers Did It From An iPad – Infographic

Nearly nine in 10 consumers who shopped online via a tablet during Black Friday used an iPad, a new study suggests.

The IBM 2012 Holiday Benchmark report indicates the iPad brought 88% of traffic to the mobile web on Black Friday — more than any other tablet or smartphone. It also made up 10% of total online shopping.

The data comes from the company’s IBM Digital Analytics Benchmark, a cloud-based platform which tracks more than a million e-commerce transactions each data and analyzes data from 500 U.S. retailers.

Meanwhile, the Barnes and Noble Nook tablet brought 3.1% of tablet traffic, followed by the Amazon Kindle Fire (2.4%) and the Samsung Galaxy (1.8%). Consumers also tapped away on smartphones to get shopping deals. About 8.7% of mobile traffic came from the iPhone and 5.5% came from Android devices.

In-store shopping was also complimented with the use of mobile phones (58%) to scour the web for the best deals. Overall, mobile traffic to retail sites grew more than 67%.

Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn also connected shoppers with retail sites, but those referrals only generated about 0.34% of all online sales during Black Friday — a 35% drop from 2011.

For a full look at how shoppers shopped on Black Friday, check out the infographic below.

Sports Fans And Digital Media – Infographic

With the fecundity of digital media such as social networks, online content sites and web video, 2012 is a terrific time to be a sports fan. Content abounds, highlights proliferate and there’s never a shortage of takes, opinion or commentary — sensible or otherwise.

No matter our sport of preference, Twitter, smartphones and other products of the digital age play a larger role than ever when it comes to consuming and following the games we love. We all know our own personal digital routines, but how do sports fans as a whole interact with digital and social media? How many are hardcore, and how many just follow along casually? Where do they go for news and updates?

Burst Media recently took a survey to find out and the results are displayed in the infographic below. The findings are based on a pretty small sample size of about 530 fans, so should be taken with a healthy dose of salt. Nonetheless, this is some interesting food for thought.

According to Burst’s survey results, fans between the ages of 18 and 35 use social media to follow teams and players more than to actually comment on news or share links and other content. Both men and women said they go online for sports content a few times per week, although more than one in 10 men do so several times per day. More than half of serious fans, meanwhile, use tablets or smartphones to supplement their experience while watching sports on TV.

For more findings, check out the full infographic below. Then, in the comments, let us know how it compares to your own digital sports consumption experiences and observations.

There’s no denying that people love their gadgets. In fact, the smartphone market grew 42% from 2010 to 2011, and manufacturers have sold 40 million tablets over the past two years. Not to mention the 1 billion — yes, billion — mobile devices expected to be activated by the end of the year and a total of 40 billion apps downloaded on them.

As these numbers rise, so does interest from cyber criminals looking to obtain sensitive data. About 59% of organizations have experienced an increase in malware due to insecure mobile devices, and many of which stem from apps.

Kids And Technology, More Mobile Than Ever – Infographic

We know the iPad has become a major hit with adult tech consumers since Steve Jobs first introduced the gadget back in 2010. But did you know tablets have scored big points with kids as well?

Humans are becoming familiar with digital technology and devices earlier than ever. In fact, more than half of children between the ages of five and eight have already used tablets to play or learn, according to some research. For kids between the ages of six and 12, the iPad was the most coveted gadget last Christmas. Tablets are permeating family life, too; in households that own a device, kids 12 and under get their hands on it more often than not.

The iPad, especially, is becoming prevalent in American education. More than 1.5 million are currently in use by students, and schools bought some 47,000 in the first month-and-a-half after its release. There are currently more than 20,000 apps meant for education, and 80% of learning apps in the App Store target kids. Some studies even show that students who have access to iPads do better in school than kids who don’t.

All this information comes from creative media agency MDG Advertising, which pulled research from sources, including CNN, The Wall Street Journal, MarketWatch and others to produce the following infographic. Check it out below for the fuller picture.
