Research by Ofcom in their Communications Market report has drawn comparisons between today's connected family and the 1950's family, as both tend to gather together in the living room with 91% of adults nowadays watching TV on the main set. There's just one important difference in 2013 being that most members of the family will also have their digits glued to a mobile phone or tablet device - chatting with friends, voicing opinions on their social status or watching completely different content!
