As the Coronavirus outbreak continues to spread globally, people have made significant adjustments to their daily lives. In order to maintain social distancing, people are spending most of their days indoors with their digital devices. To better understand these ongoing changes in behavior, AdColony has been surveying users periodically to gain insights on their current digital usage.
