The crucial role of Mobile in Africa

Excellent quote from Eve Pennington, Head of Human Experience for SMG and ZenithOptimedia South Africa discussing a recent report entitled ‘Mobile Trends 2020 Africa’

‘Where technology was always the remit of the wealthy, mobile technology has democratised technology. It allows people to connect with one another across geographical borders and facilitates like minded people congregating and sharing experiences.

Mobile acts as the social glue for a society from a personal point of view and from a broader social development standpoint, enabling the biggest social need in countries such as education and health’
