According to Internet marketing research company comScore, 20.1 million mobile phone owners in the U.S. used their device to scan a QR code in October.
QR codes are two-dimensional codes that are scanned with a smartphone, connecting individuals to additional online content or information. More on QR codes in the Mobile Gov Wiki.
Agencies, like TSA, are starting to use these symbols, whichlook like a squiggly-maze, on signs and other real-life media to direct people to additional information. Looks like people are learning how to use them.
