December 15, 2015 — In today’s modern society, technology plays a huge role within every household. It is an evolving lifestyle, from having bulky CRT television sets in the early 1950’s to our current day Full HD flat screen Smart TV’s. Technology is especially fast moving when it comes to mobile communication devices as they have grown far from its basic purpose of communication into a multi-functional tool with 66.8% of Malaysian users owning one smartphone while, 28.9% of users carry two.
In fact, it has become a norm for every member of the family to own a smartphone together with either a tablet, laptop or a PC – occasionally, some may own all types. While the top owned devices are smartphones with 71%, computer (desktop, laptop, notebook) with 35% and tablets with 14%, this highlights the growing popularity and necessity in our everyday lifestyle. Since a positive total of 66% of the Malaysian population uses the Internet, Strategy Analytics forecast’s that the number of devices will hit 33 billion by 2020 and the number of connections per person will more than double to 4.3.
With that being said, multiple devices are often used concurrently and for various activities. So much so, that the look and feel in today’s family household creates the effect of multi-device functionality. The reason for that is because every member of the family is entertained by technology, one way or another. For instance, Dad watches football on TV while checking live scores on his smartphone, Mom cooks up a storm in the kitchen, referring to recipes on her tablet. The children are usually on their smartphones updating social media platforms and communicating with their peers, whilst researching on e-books for their take-home assignments on their laptops.
The rise of technology within the family household also helps work-from-home parents. Recent research noted that up to 13.9% of people worked from home in 2014 and that work-from-home parents often suffer from work-care balance crisis as they need to make a living and care for their young at the same time. To achieve equal satisfaction on their work role and family role, both parents need to understand the responsibilities of both spheres which can be daunting at times. However, the number of work-from-home parents continues to grow every year due to the need to spend more quality family time together.
