CNBC's 2014 Mobile Elite survey compiled over 600 online interviews across Europe, Asia and North America. Market research company, T-Poll collected Europe and the U.S.'s data whilst GMI oversaw Asia's content. Weekdays are still the most popular time for hunting down information.
While those in Asia and the U.S. consume news during the mornings, European executives don't clock off as easily, with weekday evenings being the perfect time for catching up.
The weekend allows more time to digest articles and information thoroughly, with 48 percent consuming 'in-depth articles' and 38 percent observing business profiles.
Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Cass Business School London, Andre Spicer said checking work updates on the weekend is part of "an ongoing trend where work life and private life is bleeding into one another".
A reason for this is that "global business environments work on a 24/7 basis", therefore people need to "constantly stay in touch". This is becoming increasingly acceptable, Spicer added, as organizations have an "expectation" to be constantly working.
