The mobile Internet services require context-awareness and user-segment-awareness to improve usability and quality of content. The author proposes a time zone index, which aims to identify which time zones in a day the users use for a particular mobile service.

From observation, the proposed method effectively partitions the users into three groups, the strong loyal users, the average users and the weak loyal users.
