The Mobile Worker Movement

Infographics, by definition, are graphics that include information, most usually in a percentage or numerical format. Yet, “The Mobile Worker Movement” infographic seemed to consist of just two–or no more than four–such presentations. It used prose more than facts and figures to promote its theme. This does not make this a bad infographic; it just makes it different.

Moreover, as with all dated material, the facts and figures are subject to debate. There is a blurb stating that Morgan Stanley predicted that smartphones would overtake personal computers in terms of shipments in 2012. Now, in the middle of 2015, we recall reading articles from one year ago stating that there are more mobile and smartphones in the world than there are people.

Next to that was a message stating that in 2012, mobile e-commerce would account for 25% of all online sales. We do not have access to verification (or denial) of that prediction, but it does seem to us to be a low figure–and certainly low for 2015.

Smartphones are also advocated in this infographic for their conduciveness in promulgating productivity. However, we did not need that in 2011, in 2012 and certainly not in 2015. We have had two to three decades of personal computers in the home and in the workplace attesting to increases in productivity. A smartphone is merely another technological step in that.

The infographic alludes to “other consumer technologies”. We wonder what the authors would think of such things as tablets (not very prevalent in 2011) and even the iWatch.
