Having Fun With Candy Crush: Second-Screen Media Multitasking Offers Gratifications and (Possible) Benefits For Advertising

Previous research has shown that media multitasking can harm advertising effectiveness when audiences avoid commercials. However, interviews with multitaskers revealed psychological needs to feel productive, connected and entertained. Findings show that engaging with a second screen is habitual. It can reduce mind-wandering and enhance fun; thus, possibly increasing exposure to advertising.
