Der kan læses en kort gennemgang på en af Googles blogs: Navigating the new multi-screen world: Insights show how consumers use different devices together
Two primary ways we multi-screen
In understanding what it means to multi-screen, we discovered two main modes of usage:
- Sequential screening where we move from one device to another to complete a single goal
- Simultaneous screening where we use multiple devices at the same time
We found that nine out of ten people use multiple screens sequentially and that smartphones are by far the most common starting point for sequeDntial activity. So completing a task like booking a flight online or managing personal finances doesn’t just happen in one sitting on one device. In fact, 98% of sequential screeners move between devices in the same day to complete a task.
