Have you considered how mobile can benefit your business?
Consumers expect companies to communicate seamlessly–not only from one social platform to the next, but also from one mobile device to the next.
In this article I’ll share seven ways you can tweak your social media to appeal to mobile users.
Why Consider Mobile Users?
Users are spending more time accessing social media from mobile devices compared to desktop computers.
How much more? Pinterest users are 92% mobile; Twitter users are 86% mobile; Facebook is 68% mobile; and Tumblr is 46% mobile.
Given those numbers, it’s imperative that companies recognize the importance of delivering social media messaging that caters to and targets mobile device users.

Facebook tabs are an integral part of marketing your business on Facebook and a good user interface experience is important for your tabs.
You don’t want your users to waste time trying to view or navigate your custom Facebook tabs, you want them to easily read and interact with each tab.

#1: Obtain Higher Conversion Rates With an Easy Mobile Experience
In the same Google report I mentioned above, 78% of users want to find what they’re looking for on a mobile site in just one or two clicks, and 64% of users only want to scroll up and down on a business’ mobile site, not left and right.
Are you wondering how to optimize it for mobile users?
