The differences between mobile and desktop users

There are some important differences between mobile and desktop users. A desktop user is less affected by external stimuli and time pressure. This ensures that there is more focus and time to process the information. Those who mainly surf on mobiles often have little time and have to deal with many external stimuli. This group is more likely to have concentration problems. By offering relevant content, as many stimuli as possible are removed. Because the mobile version is also used for the desktop, this means that the desktop user will also experience fewer stimuli. This also increases the focus of desktop users. If your website is optimally attuned to this, it can certainly bring you benefits.
