InternetServiceProviders.org recently published an infographic detailing the future profiel of the internet user. Worldwide, 2.4 billion people use the internet. That's roughly 39% of the world's population. By 2017, it's predicted that there will be over 1 billion additional users compared to this number. Also, due to the fast-selling SmartPhone, it's expected that mobile browsing will surpass desktop browsing by 2015. One of the most interesting facts that the infographic shares is that there are more SmartPhones in the world than the population of Brazil.
How does this industry get online and interact with these new users? Christine Hill, Senior Director, Global Customer Experience Strategy at Eli Lilly and Company will be on hand this September at ePharma Summit West to present Customers in the Driver’s Seat: Understanding What Your Audience Wants and Needs. During her presentation, she'll look at the new face of innovation and engagement driven by your consumers who are this fast-growing number of internet users.
