Adobe Predicts “Most Mobile Super Bowl Ever” With Advertisers Winning A 60% Jump In Mobile Traffic

adobe-logo-180pxBased on record playoff audience numbers combined with growing social media mentions, Adobe is predicting this year’s Super Bowl to draw the largest US television audience of all time and be, “the most mobile Super Bowl ever.”

According to Adobe Digital Index (ADI) analysis, the company claims Super Bowl advertisers can expect a 60 percent increase in mobile traffic on game day, with a third of web site visits happening on a mobile device.

From Adobe’s report:

More than 50 percent of viewers will have a smartphone in their hands at some point during the Super Bowl. One in three of them will be using the phone to chat on social media.
