VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 20, 2011) - Mobio Technologies, Inc., an international mobile payments and marketing company, today released a comprehensive report on QR barcode adoption and use in North America called "The Naked Facts: Impulse Edition". The report covers the second 3 months of 2011 and shows an unbelievable 9840% increase in QR barcode scanning across the continent. The report further examines demographics showing QR scanners are getting younger and males are making a break into a previously female dominated activity. Throughout the report remarkable increases are reported including the expansion and usage of QR mobile payments as well as scanning frequencies. Facebook and Twitter no longer dominate the digital world; online [non social media] and TV are bridging the gap. The report includes hard numbers, statistics, charts and graphs. Mobio continues to present mainly raw data - limited commentary is provided. One thing is entirely clear: QR barcodes are creating an impulse for all of us to scan.
