Tablets and smartphones are the optimum ways for consuming web content, there’s no way around it. More and more people turn to mobile devices to get what they need on the web as smartphones and tablets become increasingly cheap and accessible. These devices are changing the very ways that we interact with the web—we’re no longer sitting at huge desktops browsing the web at our leisure; entrepreneurs now focus on offering online services that work for the web browser on the go.
A recent article in Forbes magazine explains how mobile devices have changed the way we browse and engage services on the web. According to the data in the article, the percentage of people using mobile devices for surfing the web increased from 4% to 26%. And those numbers are only getting bigger. For anyone in the web business, it seems like a smart move to start thinking mobile.
Nowadays bloggers and major social media players conduct much of their business from the comfort of their smartphones. Blogging platforms like Blogger, WordPress, and Tumblr have smartphone apps that are designed to accommodate the needs of the blogger on the go. Social media tools like Twitter are practically built for mobile devices.
When Twitter announced they were instituting anew censorship policy, the micro-blogging platform faced an immediate and severe backlash from the majority of the web community. Now, as a result of a previously announced change to the Blogger platform that was initially announced on January 9th, the Blogger platform has also come under scrutiny. The change, which deploys a country-specific URL to the Blogger platform, will allow Google to censor and remove content on a country-by-country basis similar to the new Twitter policy.
