It was said that the number of people accessing the web via their mobile devices will exceed PC users by 2015 in the United States,followed by the Western Europe.
Analysts at IDC claimed that the number of people using the web through a personal computer in the United States will decrease from 240 million this year to 225 million in 3 years. In the meantime, the number of mobile users will grow from 174 million to 265 million over the same period. This trend is expected to be followed in other parts of the world – for instance, the Western Europe will face the same proportion a couple of years later.
With smartphones becoming increasingly widespread, the chances are that the situation will remain the same if not more so in emerging markets while the users switch from feature phones. At the same time, sales of personal computers are expected to stay lower. More and more often you can see the mobile phone icon next to your friends’ “online” status. The experts claim that at the same time the mobile advertising throughout the globe will increase from $6 billion last year to $28 billion in 3 years.
Anyway, this change will most likely have an impact on overall advertising revenues. The statistics shows that a lot of companies have struggled to get money from Internet advertising despite generating large revenues from PC use. One of the bright examples is Facebook, which has struggled to really effectively monetize online advertising, as you can see from its dropping share value. The predictions are that the 66% of the social network members visiting the service through a personal computer this year will drop to 52% in 2016.

|I agree 100%.|
Just take a look at e.g. Japan,South Korea,India-the REAL trendsetters nowadays-
and you can observate how we will follow their lead...
|Nice numbers, however, it doesn't mean people are replacing their PCs with mobiles for internet use. Most people will use their pc to connect to the internet while at home. So (mostly) the same people use both kinds of devices. Nothing shocking about these numbers.|
|And new interception servers for phones in India any one else see a correlation between the 2.!!!|

|access or always on? as there is a diff. personally I don't like mobile phone web access as its way to limited. not to mention the speeds are not even close to that of cable of dsl. and the data caps are far worse. so I really don't see how this is an accurate assumption just because more Hi tech devices are selling now with always on web just like when dsl/cable went live.|
@moviefreak24: "it doesn't mean people are replacing their PCs with mobiles for internet use" that's exactly right.
just because my 3DS is always on the web don't mean that I use it more than my PC. I actually uses it less and I use my psp even less than my 3DS, but the wifi is turned off.
|I can't wait, to never hear the word Facebook again.I hope it turns into aswipe book for those with the runs.|
