The Internet is Changing-Browser vs. App

Collage1

I found an interesting article from Wired Magazine  talking about how the web is dead and applications are starting to take over. I also found some data from Flurry Analytics that states that in June 2010 that mobile apps consumption was at 43 minutes per day and now June 2011 it is up to 81 minutes per day.

The Wired article talked about what we do when we wake up…

You wake up and check your email on your bedside iPad — that’s one app. During breakfast you browse Facebook,Twitter, and The New York Times — three more apps. On the way to the office, you listen to a podcast on your smartphone. Another app. At work, you scroll through RSS feeds in a reader and have Skype and IM conversations. More apps. At the end of the day, you come home, make dinner while listening to Pandora, play some games on Xbox Live, and watch a movie on Netflix’s streaming service.”

This is so true (sounds like me) and what is even more interesting is how will marketing professional handle this new way of interacting with media and brands. How will you stay top of mind with your clients and prospects. How will you different yourself locally?  With Flipboard and digital publications  how will printed collateral be used and viewed.

One thing I do know is that personal relationships will never replace technology and people will always end up buying products from people they respect and like.
