The latest Digital News Report from the Reuters Institute of Journalism at Oxford has released their annual report on digital news consumption habits in numerous countries — including the U.S. The Key Findings review consumption habits of news on mobile phones and tablets, finding and sharing news, paying for news, sharing and participation.
Some major findings include….
- 33% consume news on at least two devices. The more devices owned, the more frequently people tend to access the news
- Smartphone and tablet users in the United States are much more likely to pay for news – even after controlling for factors such as income and interest in news
- Users of Apple smartphones in the United States were 41% more likely to share news than other digital news users after controlling for other variables.
