Before they would dispense with the first coffee in the morning than with their mobile phones and only put them on silence if they ask. The image and profile of the business executive perfectly match this statement. Already in the last century the Namibia Mobile Database filmography always portrayed them glued to a huge and heavy telephone with an infinite antenna, but wireless, yes. The reality today is that mobile devices have become an indispensable element for the performance of your work and for staying connected with your clients and colleagues.
A few days ago we discovered that 9% of the population consults their smartphone every five minutes and that the bulk of users, 60%, have to look at it at least once every hour (Harris Interactive). Executives could easily fit into those statistics. But the Internet service provider Sprint has delved a little deeper into this segment of professionals especially active in their mobile activity, surveying 150 executives and executives in the field of telecommunications.
Surprisingly, of all the uses analyzed, the most widespread is that of Facebook. 63% of those surveyed said they use their mobile phone to keep up to date on the lives of their family and friends. The other most relevant social network, this one of a strictly professional nature, is Linkedin, which is used on mobile by 54% of executives.
The applications are quite popular. 67% of those surveyed by Sprint have between 10 and 50 apps downloaded to their mobile. Although the study does not specify how many of them they use daily, it is not the first time that executives have spoken of a special interest in applications, to navigate (70%), read news (67%) and check the weather (66 %), according to data from Doremus and the Financial Times in the middle of the year.
The attachment to the Brother Cell Phone List smartphone is undoubtedly quite large in this segment of the population and 45% percent of executives do not silence it unless it is strictly necessary or so requested. They need to be permanently connected and that is why they tend to hire high-speed data rates, so that their frequent trips and trips do not interfere with their daily work routine. The latter includes sending an average of 20 emails every day. At least that is what 43% of those surveyed say.
Time for leisure? Also, but less. Only a quarter of executives reserve a small use of their mobile to watch or consult sporting events (20%) or to have dozens of songs stored (25%).
