Mobile: The New Political Platform

There’s no doubt that mobile usage is shaping a new era of political participation and discussion. In 2008, the giant communication channel for political chatter was on Facebook and Twitter. Although social still has a heavy viral reach, Americans took their mobile device to share their thoughts through text, donations, and flooded mobile app, Instagram, with pictures of “I Voted” stickers to show off their pride in making their vote count.

In a new infographic by mobile payments company, Payvia, they collected new statistics that illustrate the modern wave of mobile engagement during this year’s Presidential Election.

Some highlights:

  • 90% of American keep their mobile within three feet, 24 hours a day
  • 60% of smartphone users said they would vote via mobile
  • 89% of 18-24yos spend between 1 and 5 hours on their mobile device each day
  • Half of 18-24yos discussed the election via mobile
  • Romney and Obama both used mobile as the exclusive communication channel to announce their VP selection
