Growth of Mobile in Bristol Community

Smartphones are everywhere, Jim Kirk eat your heart out.

So yes, it seems unlikely anybody out there is unaware of the phenomenal growth in mobile ownership, or the fact that these devices get fancier by the month.

What you might not be aware of is the resulting radical change in the usage of the web. Here’s some amalgamated stats from some of the community sites I manage.

These aren’t tech focused sites at all, nor are they aimed at a young audience. So we’re not seeing a skewed perspective here – these are typical Bristolian users with mobiles and tablets going from less than 3% of the audience to 22% in two years flat.

The take-away: if you’re thinking of building a website soon, it needs to be responsive.
