A current awareness resource for students & faculty members in Business & Economics

On mobiles, millennials, mobile millennials, monetization and more

Published by Mark Bodnar

I was just searching through comScore's Insights (blog posts, case studies, data gems, reports, and more) when I came across a series of cool resources focused on mobiles, millennials, and even mobile millennials, including a bit of Canada-specific data.  I've always been a sucker for a good alliterative coincidence -- and once my attention had been grabbed, I thought I'd share the joy via a blog post... 

** Note: comScore's Insights are generally free, but registration is often required to download them.

Have fun! (Or, to return to my alliteration theme... make merry!)
