    I would be interested to see more detail on this issue as I know different types of consumers behave in vastly different ways to mobile ads. I for one consider an ad on my Blackberry as pure spam – no “ifs”, “buts” or “maybes”.

    I also do not accept 95% of the fliers and other junk mail handed out at intersections UNLESS I can clearly and immediately see that I might be interested (eg. when the car is due for a service). Yet I will see many more drivers accept every single flier, glance at it and toss it out the window. That is a behaviour I find repugnant on every level, but the advertiser in question is none the wiser and sees its epistles disappearing by the ton.

    In fact, I am so appalled at the general standard of direct advertising worldwide – whether to laptops, via email, Facebook, Google, intersections, post office boxes, direct to home/office – that, on a point of principle I refuse to support any company making itself guilty of this kind of obnoxious advertising.

    And whether we like to admit it or not, different African cultures behave in different ways … hence my opening question.
