It's not a secret that Pinterest, Google, Facebook and other companies don't want users to leave their platforms. Pinterest is adding "buyable pins" that enable shoppers to purchase items directly on its site; Google announced a similar feature with buy buttons on its ads, and Facebook increasingly offers features that encourage users to check in and never leave.

Every time I scroll through my Facebook news feed, visions of Lamb Chop come to mind. "This is the song that doesn't end. Yes, it goes on and on, my friends." Low-quality photos and unsolicited opinions flood the page, hurtling me down an expansive rabbit hole of existential contemplation: Why are we here? Why are we wasting our time?

Experts and analysts continue to exploit millennials as scapegoats in this era of rapid digital adoption, yet anyone can see that mobile usage spans the generations.

Customers aren't just multichannel. They're increasingly cross-channel as they use a variety of different touchpoints to find information about product and services they're interested in.
