More Facebook Less Face Time

 
More Facebook Less Face Time


People are spending more time on Facebook and less with real people.

A new report has taken a look at 8 years of data on how Americans spend their leisure time, and calculates how much of it we spend online.

The results show every hour we give to online pursuits, including browsing Facebook or searching Google, corresponds to 16 fewer minutes working, 7 fewer minutes sleeping and 17 fewer minutes for all other leisure activities, including going to parties or watching TV.
In effect we're spending more time Facebooking and less time with real faces.

The results suggest more people see socializing online and socializing in real life as interchangeable.
