From fourth quarter 2012 to fourth-quarter 2013, the hours consumers spent watching online video grew 30%. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

Digital/Mobile News


Denmark Has Over Two Million Web Users Daily

Denmark’s regular internet users are quickly converting to mobile access. In a study conducted by Statistics Denmark in Q2 2014, 2.1 million 16-to-89-year-old internet users in the country said they went online via a mobile device every day—an increase of 800,000 people since 2012. In total, the share of respondents who said they were daily mobile web users jumped from 29% to 46% between 2012 and 2014. The rise in mobile web access has been dramatic in all age groups. But the largest proportional increases were seen in the 16-to-24 age group—where penetration rose from 54% to 78% in two years—and among those ages 45 to 54—where daily usage nearly doubled, from 24% to 47%.


Among seniors ages 65 to 74 and 75 to 89, daily engagement with the mobile web was much lower, at 14% and 3%, respectively. But in both these age brackets, usage had at least trebled compared with 2012.

Online activities, including social networking, reading the news, email and internet banking, are transferring to mobile platforms at different rates, Statistics Denmark reported. In fact, all these things were more likely to be carried out on a computer than on a mobile device, but consumers were understandably happier to visit social sites or check the news via mobile than to do their banking on a smaller screen.

When it comes to digital news, it leads the pack in several of ways: Denmark retains many strong media brands. As a result, legacy media are the prime way for accessing digital news. And since Danish media did well embracing new platforms, they enjoyed similarly success on social, funneling readers to their properties. Danes are the heaviest users of both smartphones and tablets to access news. They use mobile apps more than anywhere else: 19%, vs. 15% for US and 12% for Germany. They are mostly Apple users : 58% say they use an iOS device to access news in the last week (vs. 28% in Germany). Danish news consumers generously overlap their devices way more than in any country. 79% use a PC, 61% a smartphone and 39% a tablet. Only 24% use only a PC for news. In Danish public transportation, smartphones has overtaken print as the main news vector by 69% vs. 21% of the usage.


In Denmark as elsewhere, mobile web activity is closely related to smartphone penetration. The country already has the second-highest level of smartphone usage in Western Europe, eMarketer estimates. In fact, advanced handset penetration is rising faster in Denmark than in Norway, the top-ranked country by this measure. As a result, we expect Denmark to surpass Norway in smartphone user penetration in 2017.

Twitter/Facebook Score Big In 2014 World Cup Final

Germany’s World Cup final victory over Argentina smashed global records on Twitter, and has become the biggest sporting event in Facebook’s history. Twitter said that Germany’s 1-0 victory peaked at 618,725 tweets a minute, easily breaking the previous record of 580,166 set during the team’s 7-1 demolition of Brazil in the semi-final. However, the total of 32.1m tweets sent during the game – tracked on a global heat map as the game progressed – failed to break the record 35.6m set by the Germany/Brazil game.

Facebook said that 88 million global users made a record 280m interactions – posts, likes and comments – during the World Cup final. The social networking site said this easily broke through the previous record held of 245m interactions, set by the Super Bowl in 2013.
