Thesurvey polled more than 28,000 consumers with traditional online/Internet access from 56 countries throughout Asia-Pacific, Europe, LatinAmerica, the Middle East, Africa, and North America. While online survey methodology allows for tremendous scale and global reach, it islimited in that it provides a perspective only on the habits of existing Internet users, not total populations. Results may therefore, amongother possibilities, over-report online usage via computers, under-report traditional television usage, and/or under-report mobile mediausage. Additionally, responses are only indicative of respondents beliefs about their own media usage, rather than actual metered data. Copyright 2012 The Nielsen Company. 3
