Internet Trends 2013: Report Highlights Growth of Internet Usage
Internet Trends Report 2013 by the Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers partner has been released recently. The latest edition of the annual Internet Trends report finds continued robust online growth. There are now 2.4 billion Internet users around the world, and the total continues to grow apace.
Mobile usage is expanding rapidly, while the mobile advertising opportunity remains largely untapped. Mary Meeker, a partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, thinks there’s a $20 billion opportunity in Internet and mobile advertising.
The report reviews the shifting online landscape, which has become more social and content rich, with expanded use of photos, video and audio.
Looking ahead, the report finds early signs of growth for wearable computing devices, like glasses, connected wrist bands and watches – and the emergence of connected cars, drones and other new platforms.
