Findings on the Digitally Connected and Their Assets

Horrigan, John B., Pew Internet & American Life Project, The Mobile Difference (2009). http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2009/5-The-Mobile-Difference–Typology.asp“For a sizable minority of Americans, mobile connectivity expands their digital horizons as they do more with their suite of wireline and wireless tools,” said John B. Horrigan, Associate Director of the Pew Internet Project and author of the typology report. “Mobile services complement existing broadband assets, and these Americans find it increasingly hard to be without their connectivity traveling with them as they go.”  These findings are the centerpiece of a new typology of technology users released by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project. The typology places information and communication technology (ICT) users into ten categories built around their assets (the gadgets they have), actions (how they use ICTs), and attitudes (how they feel about the role of ICTs in their lives).
