#E2sday: Mobile Lurking Through the Holidays

|   Nov 22, 2011

Do you find yourself constantly checking your smart phone even though you are on vacation? Historically, the holidays are times when we disconnect from work and spend quality time with our family and friends. However, with the growth of mobile technology, we are hyper-connected, so staying on top of what’s happening at work is easier than ever.

Last year, more than half of our users checked their Socialcast communities over the holidays. While they weren’t posting like they do during traditional working days, people were checking and reading content. According to Socialcast’s users, the need to stay on top of what is occurring at their company helps them feel more connected and mitigates any emergencies when they return.

Will you be checking this year?

  • We all undergo FoMo ( Fear of Missing out) when we are on a vacation as we have minimal access to business & work. BYOD and mobility is changing it all. It helps us remain connected and have peace of mind even when we are holidaying.
