Baby Care Advice Online Publications Meeker Promises There Is Money In Mobile 05/31 Facebook's initial public offering cast a harsh light on its failure so far to monetize its immense mobile audience of 500 million worldwide. But it’s hardly the only company struggling to figure out how to make money off a rapidly growing mobile user base as more people adopt smartphones and tablets. In her annual Internet trends report presented Wednesday at the AllThingsD D10 conference, Mary Meeker underscored the upside for mobile monetization based on the history of ad growth on the desktop Web.

We’re really excited to deliver Shadow and start simplifying the pain points of previewing, inspecting and presenting mobile web content. Shadow at SXSW

Profiting from Information Products 7 usability guidelines for websites on mobile devices Mobile Internet is continuing to grow very quickly. These guidelines will help you create or improve your mobile user experience. 1. Reduce the amount of content Not everything shown on a PC site can fit reasonably onto a mobile web page, where space is short and every pixel counts. Only include the most important content or features. Mobile websites should be very focused. 2. Wide web pages are difficult to view on small mobile phone screens. Remove low priority content and present content using a single column layout Instead, create single column pages that use up the whole width of the screen. 3. It's difficult to fit the navigation across the top of the screen on a mobile web page.
