Why you should make sure your website is responsive
According to an annual report published by wearesocial.com in January 2020, there has been an increase in the number of mobile phone, internet and social media users, as well as the time people spend on the internet, illustrated below. Of course, this growth is closely linked to the evolution of technology. The more advanced and therefore more interesting the technology is, the more interested people are to spend time using it. Of the number of mobile phone users, 73% own smartphones, compared to 69.6% in 2018. In fact, from the average of 6 hours and 43 minutes spent on the internet, 3 hours and 22 minutes are dedicated to mobile phone. And time spent on the internet increased by 21 minutes compared to 2014.
