Along with the positives, there are those that say that this revolutionary marketing tool is on uncertain ground and that third party stakeholders are given too much information on an individual.

With great power comes great responsibility:


This statement has never been truer than in this situation, personally from my point of view, if the information is used responsibly then no it isn’t an invasion of privacy. As a business it is beneficial for you to know what your customers like, what they enjoy doing and how they prefer to receive their content.

If it’s been noticed that your journey to and from work takes you along a promenade of shops everyday but you don’t stop to visit them, you can become an object of fascination.

Is the PC becoming extinct?


With over 1 billion smartphone devises in use around the world it is no wonder the question of the desktop crops up, will it become a thing of the past? This figure is only a snap shot into today’s mobile environment; it does not take into consideration the millions of tablet devises in use as well.

The majority of people use their devices to access the interest more than anything else. Therefore, it isn’t a coincidence that tech gurus have predicted that mobile internet is to surge in the coming year and eventually over take standard fixed line internet by 2014. The average person uses the internet on a portable devise every day, this is why mobile optimisation is such a current and trending topic for 2013.

Take the time to think of who it is that is in your key customer base: where would their first port of call be if they were to be conducting research about you? If it’s the internet then you must ensure you are accessible to all avenues of access.
