Myth #33: Mobile users are distracted

Written by UX Myths / Original link on Oct. 6, 2014

When thinking of mobile users, many have a stereotypical image of people on the go, people with the attention span of a goat and suffering from Mobile User Attention Deficit Disorder.

But are mobile users distracted? Of course they are. But we are just as much distracted when sitting in front of our computers, watching TV or driving a car. Distractions are everywhere, it’s not a mobile-only phenomenon.

First of all, mobile is not on-the-go

Distractions are everywhere, not only on mobile

Mobile engagement is now higher than desktop
