Of all connected devices, mobile phones are the least likely to be shared, while are the most likely, according to GlobalWebIndex’s study on digital device usership in 2014. Seventy-seven percent of mobile users surveyed said they are the only person to use their mobile device, while 46 percent of tablet users said so. Twenty-three percent of tablet users reported that one other person uses the device, while another quarter of the respondents reported that two other people use the device.
Meanwhile, 53 percent of PC desktop and laptop owners said they are the only users of their devices, while 17 percent said one other person uses the device and another one-fifth said two others use the device. Fifty-seven percent of e-reader users are singular users, while 20 percent have another user and about a fifth have two other users.
