For the past few years the advertising industry has being discussing mobile as "the next big thing" for advertisers and now, with mobile having grown by 86% across South Africa over the past six years, we can safely say the "next big thing" has undeniably arrived and is here to stay.
According to an article by Forbes on the 2016 predictions for the "App Economy", consumers have reached a state of “hypermobility”. They rapidly adopt mobile technologies and downloading applications that keep them connected anywhere, anytime. This always-connected generation is modifying their daily behaviours based on their endless choices in mobile and electronic devices.
