A recent report came out saying that more than 1 in 5  page views are coming from mobile devices in North America and Europe.  Depending on the vertical, it can be even higher. For example, in some enthusiast and B2C customer forums, the amount of mobile traffic has exceeded 50%. Regardless of your niche, as mobile traffic continues to grow, its consequences cannot be ignored. More than ever, you need to consider how your forum platform will integrate with your existing website, and the user experience your community members will have on their mobile devices. This is especially the case if you want to keep your mobile users engaged.

What makes for a good mobile forum user experience? What are some of the technology options? How might your community members behave differently when they are accessing your forum from a mobile device? We explore these questions, and much more in our free white paper. Get your copy here.
