Today In Communication History

On this date in 1990, the first episode of ‘Seinfeld’ aired on NBC.

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.


He said it first....'Television'.

He said it first….’Television’.

In 1900, the term ‘television’ is coined by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Congress, part of the 1900 Paris Exhibition.

App User Retention Remains A Struggle in 2016
Mobile app use is highly concentrated, as recent data from comScore shows that mobile users spend the majority of their app time with their single favorite one. And while Nielsen data shows that time spent with smartphone apps is increasing, the number of apps that smartphone users typically access hasn’t really budged in the past few years. Now, Localytics provides some more context, detailing mobile app user retention rates in its latest annual study on this topic. The Localytics data shows that almost 1 in 4 users (23%) abandon an app after a single use. This figure remains squarely within the 20-25% range observed from 2012 onwards, suggesting that either apps are not doing enough to engage users, or that this is simply typical user behavior.
Another popular measure of app user retention is to look at the percentage of users who launch an app at least 3 times. Over the past 5 years, the percentage of users who fail to reach this mark of loyalty has ranged from 38% (2014) to 45% (2015), with this year’s figure (41%) again firmly within that range.

While app user loyalty hasn’t changed much in the past few years, the cost to acquire a loyal user has. As recently as 2014, the cost of acquiring a loyal iOS app user (one who opens an app three times or more) for brands who proactively market their apps hovered between around $1.50 and $2.25. Over the past year, that figure has not dropped below $2.50, and has spent most of the time above the $3 mark, even surpassing $4 on a few occasions. That data comes courtesy of Fiksu, which tracks the “Cost Per Loyal User Index” on a monthly basis.

As for iOS apps, user retention has slightly improved this year, per the Localytics report, which notes that 24% of users are abandoning an app after a single use, down from 26% last year. On the other end of the spectrum, this year 36% of users return to an app 11 or more times, up from 32% last year.

For all apps measured for the study, user retention (those returning at least 11 times) rose to 38% this year from 34% in 2015.

Earlier research from Urban Airship has indicated that push messages have a strong effect on retention rates, and this latest study from Localytics suggests that push messages’ “often overlooked cousin” in-app messages also can have a significant influence on retention rates.

Indeed, in-app messages appear to have an outsized effect on abandonment and retention. The report notes that only 17% of users abandon an app after a single use when seeing an in-app message, compared to 26% of users who do so for apps that don’t utilize in-app messages.

On the other end of the spectrum, apps using an in-app messaging strategy retain 46% of users for at least 11 launches, compared to 36% of users for apps not using in-app messaging.

About the Data: Localytics says it processes 120 billion data points monthly across more than 2.7 billion devices and 37,000 mobile and web apps. For this analysis, the firm measured the percentage of users who only used an app once as well as the users who returned multiple times. For the in-app messaging analysis, Localytics compared the percentage of users who did or did not return to apps who are using in-app messages compared to those who are not. The timeframe for the study was March 1st 2015 – April 30th 2016.

Mobile Shoppers Want To See The Product
Being able to see product pictures via a smartphone or tablet device is the most important mcommerce-related capability, according to US shoppers. Nielsen surveyed 3,734 US mobile shoppers ages 18 and older during Q4 2015 about using smartphones and tablets for ecommerce activities.
Almost half (48%) of smartphone shoppers said that using the mobile-friendly version of a website was important for mcommerce. More than a third of tablet shoppers said the same thing.

Being able to read product reviews, having the product descriptions and having the ability to compare product prices were other mcommerce-related capabilities both smartphone and tablet shoppers considered important.

More tablet shoppers than smartphone shoppers said the size of the text or link on the website was important—perhaps surprising considering tablets’ larger screens. On the flip side, tablet shoppers were less concerned than their smartphone-wielding counterparts about using mobile-friendly websites, likely thanks to those larger screens.
In general, mobile commerce had a breakthrough year in 2015. Indeed, smartphone retail mcommerce sales in the US nearly doubled, driven by larger screens, smoother buying experiences, better mobile search and context-driven discovery.

And, eMarketer expects US retail mcommerce sales will reach $123.13 billion in 2016, a 39.1% increase over 2015 and more than double the amount in 2014. As a result of this rapid growth, mcommerce will account for just under one-third of retail ecommerce sales and 2.6% of total retail this year.
