We sleep with our smartphones by our side and tablet ownership continues to increase, so it’s not surprising that these devices are impacting our behavior. We carry access to our favorite news outlet or retail site around with us wherever we go, and we can find out who starred in a random movie we remember from our childhood in mere seconds.

Mobile devices are always on, which has impacts across the globe for multiple industries, including local news.
On Friday, October 25, we will host our weekly FOUND Friday discussion on Google Hangouts to discuss mobile and search.
We’ll be joined by special guest Hanna Gnann, local sales manager for WRAL.com. Hanna works directly with local businesses to help them get found on WRAL.com across multiple devices.

To join our discussion, you can come back to this blog post and watch live below at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT or go watch on our YouTube channel. The hangout will last 30 minutes. If you can’t attend live, we’ll post a recap next week, and you can watch the archived video immediately following the event. Register now via Google+.
