Russians are now using the Internet on their mobile devices more frequently than through conventional computers. According to web statistics service LiveInternet, in November some 51% of Russian Internet users (31.1 million) accessed the web on their mobile devices, both phones and tablets. In October, the figure was 49.9% (29.4 million), with the majority still using their computers.
“This trend was first reflected on social networks like VKontakte and Odnoklassniki. These communications services have become the growth drivers. A new medium of interaction is being formed – people are always in touch,” says the founder of LiveInternet German Klimenko.
