Digital Consumers

11 Jul 2011 – Does this also mean that SIN do not have a LIFE…???

Amazing that 2 months have passed and having my fair share online when there is an accessible line and when not painting! In a situation without a car and with public transport costing a bomb, the internet is an inexpensive way of communication. Prepared and aware of the situation that this summer will be a summer of house cleaning, painting etc, ie nothing too exciting to share. The weather has so far been perfect for that and will take off days (according to weather and moods!!) to enjoy human company and nature walks.

The pix below is your minimum digital consumers! L&J in Jun 2009, just before the birth of #4, Sophie. With 4 children soon, they do have a life and a busy one 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

SINGAPOREANS just can’t seem to get enough of digital devices and the Internet, according to a report released by Nielsen on Monday.

The report is a pre-release of data from the research company’s inaugural South-east Asia Digital Consumer Report.

85% of digital consumers in Singapore own an Internet-capable mobile phone 
23% of Singaporean Internet users have a tablet computer in their home 
Social media platforms are growing in popularity and 85% of Singaporeans report accessing social media sites, many to connect or engage with brands and companies (69%).

The research company also found that Singapore has the highest level of Internet penetration across South-East Asia (SEA).

Two thirds of Singapore’s population aged 15+ (67%) now use the Internet, 29 points higher than the SEA regional average of 38%.

‘While Singaporeans still largely access the Internet via PCs, the growing popularity of connected devices such as the iPhone and iPad and increasing availability of cheaper mobile Internet price plans is paving the way for growth in mobile and tablet Internet usage in the future,’ said Rebecca Tan, Managing Director at Nielsen.
