I am a device fiend when it comes to the digital world. I never ‘just’ watch television or computer work. If the college football game is on, I’m looking up other scores, stats, or news. If I am streaming church while at home sick, I’m almost always doing some multitasking (they call it stacking on the infographic below) for other pieces of the ministry. Even writing this blog article, I’m listening to a podcast at the same time.
The infographic below talks about this process of using more than one device that I believe is good for us to have on our radar.
Here are three great points from the infographic:
- No surprise here, smartphones are the most used, tablets the least.
- But we do not use one device at a time, instead stacking or meshing devices.
- Churches should figure out how to encourage congregations to mesh devices while at the service beyond using a Bible app. Photos on social media, poll questions, or signing up for events are great starting points.
Do you use more than one device at a time?
