NEW YORK, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mobile Marketing Association (MMA) today launched SmartGraphics, an infographic series that provides fresh insights into how mobile services are changing the ways that consumers live and interact with their world and the ways that marketers are connecting with their customers.


The first SmartGraphic identifies nine surprising examples of how mobile has become the most personal and pervasive media in history. For example, nearly one in five Americans communicates more with their loved ones via text message than face-to-face. More than half take calls while in the bathroom.

The debut SmartGraphic is available now at Bookmark to get future SmartGraphics, which will explore more consumer habits, the growth of the mobile channel and mobile marketing's reach and effectiveness.
