More charity staff are using mobile devices and getting their news from social media, the latest Third Sector survey indicates.

Sixty-two per cent of those who have completed the survey so far have iPads or other tablets, 50 per cent have android phones and 44 per cent have iPhones.

The corresponding figures in a Third Sector survey two years ago were 44 per cent tablets, 30 per cent androids and 41 per cent iPhones.

The latest survey, which closes on Monday 3 August, also shows that 81 per cent of respondents use LinkedIn, 78 per cent Facebook and 66 per cent Twitter.

Two years ago the corresponding figures were 73 per cent, 65 per cent and 70 per cent respectively.

The survey also indicates that 62 per cent of Third Sector readers are female, 28 per cent have changed their jobs in the past year and 30 per cent are currently job hunting.

The aim of the survey is to discover more about the habits and preferences of readers in order to enhance the service provided by Third Sector.

"The world is changing fast and we want to make sure that we keep pace with our readers and find out what they want," said Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector. "So we’re urging everyone to take part."
