Quite likely that will rise, too, as more smartphones become deployed.

Pictures really ought to be on the appropriate marketing programs.

Pictures beat words: In August, U.S. smartphone owners visited Instagram from their smartphones more frequently and for longer periods of time than they visited Twitter.

That data comes from Comscore, via a new mobile measurement report: It says that throughout August, Instagram had an average of 7.3 million daily active users — or DAUs, in Facebook parlance. That tops of Twitter’s 6.868 million DAUs over the same period of time.[url]allthingsd[/url]

This is why Google implemented "carousel"..( with all the problems it brings to image creators vis a vis Google and 3rd party scraping )..they know, as do those of us who create and sell images, that people prefer images to text..images have no language barrier, a picture is worth a thousand words..and very many dollars..for good images..
