More about the Count – The data was taken from the source articles/statistics below and I will detail each one later as regards which one is being used in the counter. Also I will of course adding extra functionality to the mobile counter (such as week, month & year lookahead/backs plus dynamic data input).
I aim to replace a few slots on the Counter and I am still hunting for data such as: actual number of videos watched, pictures sent, videos sent from mobiles etc: but getting close on those! Suggestions always welcome!
