The survey, which polled 5,000 mums, also highlighted that UK mums are seven times more likely to own a tablet device than the general population.
According to Netmums founder, Siobhan Freegard, mums are using their mobile devices increasingly as a “virtual handbag” to help raise their families.
She adds: “From our research and conversations on our sites, mums are increasingly using their smartphones to help them raise their children. Advertisers should be doing more to be a part of this process, through apps, interactive advertising and more localised editorial content.”
The report revealed that 93% of online mums have a Facebook account, while two in five claim to use Twitter.
Freegard says: “With mums taking to mobile devices faster than the rest of population, brands ought to be looking at how this shift affects how open they are to sharing content, rather than solely concentrating on the harder metrics such as, KPIs and return-on-investment metrics.”
Additionally, almost 80% of mums now check online ratings and reviews before buying goods and 72% actively look for web discount vouchers.
