Mobile now makes up 15% of Web traffic, up from 10% a year ago, notes Mary Meeker in her latest Internet Trends Report. Also mentioned: China (BIDU, SINA, SOHU, YOKU) has 564M Web users (42% penetration), with 75% accessing the Web from their phones (71% use PCs); India's Web penetration is only at 11% (137M users); mobile now makes up 12% of U.S. media viewing time (it's 22% in China) and 3% of ad spend, up from 10% and 1% before; YouTube's (GOOG) per-minute video uploads are up 5x since '09; 60% of Facebook (FB) users log in daily, and the site receives 350M daily photo uploads; global smartphone penetration is still only at 21%.

    Dynamic content that adapts to the screens of various devices, will become more important in the near future. I remain unconvinced that ad content will be successful on mobile, compared to larger devices. The lack of effective mobile advertising may push mobile internet ahead of freemium apps.

    One thing I can say, (FB) is so much easier and more fun mobile. I can eat at a restaurant and take a picture of the food to post on (FB).
