The domination of social media continues to grow according to a survey from eMarketer. Having access to social media via smartphones has increased users time spent on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Now it’s easier than ever to keep in touch with family and friends and has become a huge part of our everyday life.
Real world activities such as watching TV, traveling, working, while in the toilet and even getting drunk are all done in conjunction while logging into Facebook and Twitter. The stats indicate that 8 out of 10 Facebook users and about two thirds of Tweets are done watching TV. While over half of men’s posts and tweets are done while on the toilet or on their way to being intoxicated. No matter what the gender, it appears that we all love to use Facebook and Twitter while working, shhh, just don’t tell your boss.
With 44% of smartphone users logging into their favorite social media platform, the second favorite activity seems to be games at 33% while actual working comes in last at 11%.
