A new study performed by global information and measurement company, Nielsen, found that mobile devices and tablets are playing an increasing role in television viewing habits. The study states that 46% of smartphone users and 43% of tablet users are using their mobile devices – or “second screens” – while watching TV. But what are they using them for?

Here’s what the Nielsen study suggests:

The new Nielsen study highlights that television viewers are becoming multi-taskers. While watching your program, viewers are also spending time on social media or looking up information on actors and plot-lines. It also shows the importance of having a strong social presence to coincide with your program and it demonstrates how social media can have an impact on gaining new viewers. The study also has advertisers salivating – showing that there is a correlation between viewers seeing a commercial on TV and searching for the product on their tablet or smartphone. They’re also looking for deals and coupons on the products they see in commercials. This means that content producers, broadcasters and advertisers have to adapt to these changes in viewer habits.

Are you getting through to your audience? And are you reaching them on the right platform?
