Nielsen: 40% of Mobile Users Use Internet in Bathroom and Other Interesting Charts

Screen shot 2011-01-30 at 1.26.02 PM

You can always count on Nielsen for some tasty headline bites. The latest was spotted by Engadget in a combo Nielsen/Yahoo report on mobile internet usage intended to provide insight into mobile shopping. On the other hand it provides some fun statistics that have nothing to do with mobile shopping that I just have to share with you guys. My favorite? 2/5ths of mobile users use the internet in their bathroom. 🙂 Check out some of the other good charts below or the full slide deck in PDF format here.

  1. I use mobile internet on the can all the time. It has replaced magazines by the side of the toilet.

  2. That’s just nasty. I hope they at least put down the phone to wash their hands afterwards.

    • A)My hands didn’t get any dirtier just by entering the bathroom.
      B)While I do wash my hands has it ever occurred to you that the things you touch in the bathroom have been hiding under a protective layer of clothing all day and are probably cleaner than anything else on your body?
      C)All of my statements are concerning my bathroom at home. I don’t surf in public restrooms as I like to minimize or eliminate any time I spend in those.

      • Fair enough. But something is missing in your equation. Unless I’m missing something there is definitely a point in the process in which your unwashed hands after usIng the can has touched your phone. That’s nasty however you want to justify it.

        Protective layer of clothing? Not sure what you meant by that.

  3. I definitely use it all over the place. Now that I have a tablet, I take it with me everywhere and use the internet. It has replaced my need for books.

  4. according to studies your keyboard contains and general desk area at work or at home is dirtier then your toilet…. dont see using it in the bathroom being such a big problem

  5. I know what FOSSroxTHX means. I use mine in the bathroom at home. But before I “finish up”, my phone is back in the holster and isn’t touched again until my hands are washed. Prior to that the only things my hands touch is my belt and zipper. lol.

  6. haha. I use it in the bathroom all the time 🙂

  7. I’m in the washroom right now!
