Mary Meeker’s latest Internet Trends report shatters that ill-fated prediction. You can find the presentation in its entirety below, but here are 4 key takeaways on why these trends are impacting school yearbooks:
244M Americans use the Internet
I’ve often heard the following comment from teachers and school administrators: “Our parents don’t have access to the Internet.” While it’s true that some communities, especially rural areas, have insuffucient access, this statistic dispels the myth.
219M smartphone subscribers in U.S.
Facebook is the third most used Internet property
500M photos uploaded per day.
The number of digital photos is projected to double every year for the foreseeable future. It’s now an irreplaceable part of our culture.
