Today In Communication History
On this date in 1941, Radio station W71NY in New York becomes the first commercial FM broadcaster to sign an advertiser to a contract.
On this date in 1953, the National Edition of “TV Guide” was launched.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new
homes with meters that record the channel being watched—but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.

Mobile Research
Some Small Business Websites Are Still Not Mobile
Many still don’t have a mobile site. Forty (40%) Percent said they do not have a mobile website. Yodle and Research Now polled 400 US small businesses. Small businesses were defined as locally operated businesses with fewer than 25 employees. More than half (52%) of respondents said their website is mobile-optimized thanks to the increased use of mobile phones. Additionally, 14% of US small businesses said because of the increase, they built mobile-optimized emails, and 11% said they use SMS marketing.

Perhaps surprisingly, 40% of small businesses have done none of these things. A separate survey from RBC Capital Markets also found that most small and medium-sized businesses based in the US still don’t have a mobile-optimized website. However, the share that does has grown significantly over the past year. According to the research, 64% of US small and medium-sized businesses had a professional website for their business, and an additional 10% planned to create one. That represented mixed progress since the prior year, when just 60% had a site but 17% planned to create one.

Digital/Mobile Notes
Millennials Prefer Short Videos On Their Smartphones
Older users between the ages of 35 and 54 prefer 30-second spots, according to a study by IAB with Millward Brown Digital and Tremor Video. It also found that longer videos work better for complex topics and that tablet videos work well for relaying new information.

Digital/Mobile News
Which Retail Digital Commerce Categories Grew the Fastest
Retail e-commerce spending grew by 14% year-over-year in 2015, buoyed by a 56% increase in mobile commerce spending, reports comScore. The fastest-growing categories in terms of total retail digital commerce dollars were video games, consoles & accessories (44%) and toys & hobbies (42%). The study notes that the three fastest-growing categories were driven by mobile, as consumers are increasingly willing to make these “inexpensive, less complicated” purchases on their mobile devices.
