Cell phones vs Landlines

In News & Notes on April 22, 2011 at 2:30 pm

More Americans are using cell phones instead of landlines.  According to the statistics, cell phone has increased due to younger users, the ease of use or mobility and poverty – users cannot afford a land-line or both a cell phone and land-line service.  This New York Times article provides relevant commentary this trend as well as what states are most affected.

The increased use of cell phones changes how libraries communicate with users.  Not only are customers using cell phones for calls but for Internet and/or to access the library’s website.  Libraries need to evaluate our website(s) to insure that content is compatible with this mobile demand for information.
