Majority of Mobile Users Take Pics With Their Phone

The majority of mobile users snap pictures with their phone, according to recent data from comScore.  Here’s the breakdown across markets:

  • mobile users in Spain take the most pics –  63% took photos during March 2011
  • 62% of mobile users in Japan took pics via mobile device
  • 57% did so in Italy, the UK and France
  • 54% took photos via mobile in the U.S.

Now the question is, how many of these photos are also being shared via mobile device, and how many posted to social media sites?  Will photo sharing apps continue to multiply as the mobile phone becomes the go-to ‘camera’ for many users?

Warning:  if you do post your mobile photos online, pause for a moment and think about whether you really want other people to see them.
