Chart of the week: Mobile news notifications are on the rise

How do you get the latest news? You can either go looking for it, browse your preferred sites, or you could just sit back and get an alert pushed to your mobile device of preference. In some countries the use of news alerts seems to have already peaked and their use is in slight decline, such as in the US, UK and Germany, according to the Reuters Institute.

In the US for example, alert usage peaked at 13 percent in 2015, which was slightly higher than in the UK or Germany. In other European markets, like Spain, Austria and Italy, mobile news alerts are still a growth market. In France usage seems to be stalling on a high level.
