    At least 3 of those social networks are for the most part mobile only to begin with. They either started as a mobile only service or their usage scope is outside of the desktop. Instagram is a good example, you can use Instagram via a web browser on a desktop but the whole network is based around taking pictures with your mobile device and posting them from there. Similarly with Vine and Snapchat.

    I do have to give it to the data however that there is no doubt that the proliferation of the smartphone helped to get people on the net and using these social networks that would otherwise no be bothered to get behind a computer.

    For the newer generations their first “PC” – personal computer – is a mobile.
