How many minutes a day do you look at the phone? These figures are astonishing.
How many minutes a day do you look at the phone? Most of us have a laid back attitude when it comes to painting a picture about ourselves. Do you know how much time you will have lost in 2021 on YouTube, Facebook and WhatsApp as a result of all this? Shortlist has come up with an online calculator to inform you. According to their estimates, 16- to 64-year-olds spend an average of 52,925 minutes on social media. It takes 36 days, 18 hours and five minutes!
‘We spend a lot of time in front of the screens without even realizing it. Realizing this, we decided to build such a calculator. Nicholas Finney, co-founder and CMO of Shortlist, says the goal was to warn about the true length of our digital lives’.
As part of the study, daily time spent on the Internet and social media was analyzed by Hootsuite’s Global Site of Digital 2021 report. According to this, in 2021 each person will spend about 145 minutes per day in front of the smartphone. In 2020, it was 142 minutes. According to this, 1,015 minutes per week, 4,410 minutes per month and 52,925 minutes per year are lost in front of smartphones. In the last 18 months, people have been spending more time in front of the screens than ever before.
Following COVID-19, many people had to move to office houses. Officially I had to sit in front of the screens for a long time officially for Zoom calls and so on. In addition to this, the free time was taken away by the social media. The Shortlist has the opportunity to find the 2021 screen time of each individual. For this you need to give a day the time spent in front of smartphones. The shortlist will show you the year figures and the average figures.
Shortlist points out that in 2021 we spent the most time in front of YouTube. We spent about 23 hours and 12 minutes each month in 2021 on YouTube alone. We set aside an average of 19.30 hours per month for second place Facebook. Soon after, we spent 19 hours and 24 minutes per month on the third place WhatsApp.
The sorted list of screen time by country has also been released. Filipinos spend the most time in front of smartphones in the world. They spend 10.56 hours every day scrolling in front of smartphones! Countries like Brazil 10 hours and 8 minutes, Colombia 10 hours and seven minutes and South Africa 10 hours and six minutes are not far behind in wasting time in front of smartphones.
‘In the changed times we have to sit in front of the screens for a long time as part of our work. Therefore, spending time online is not entirely wrong. At the same time, it’s a good idea to spend some time on social media and online. You need to enjoy life outside this. “It’s an attempt to remind us of how much time we waste on social media,” he said.
