#MobileChat No. 93 – The World Cup Gone Mobile

[UPDATE: View the World Cup Gone Mobile Storify for a recap of the live Q&A]

The world has had its eye on the World Cup for almost 2 weeks.  That’s not news to anyone.

What’s most  interesting to me though is both HOW and WHERE the world is watching… and of course mobile is playing a big part.

In fact, I used a fairly new mobile app to get direct feedback if people were in fact watching the World Cup while at work. The stats may surprise you.

BUT, the picture that has been the most revealing about the power of the internet and continuing global mobile revolution is of  several men watching a World Cup match at a camel market in Daba near Tabuk (photo credit: June 18, 2014.
