Have you ever wondered how much time you spend on Facebook or Instagram? Would you consider that you are addicted to social media networks? Well, even if you think that you are not, a study has just revealed that Mexico, in fact, is one of the countries that spends more time watching the cell phone screen.
According to a Global Web Index investigation (via Statista), in general, the time people spend watching social networks has decreased in recent months, reaching an average of 2 hours and 23 minutes. However, there are several countries that not only pass this average, but practically double it. The most addicted country is the Philippines, as its Internet users spend up to 4 hours a day checking their networks. The second place is occupied by Brazil, with 3 hours and 35 minutes. And, in the third place, Mexico closes the podium with an average of 3 hours and 10 minutes:
It is curious that the study noted that the countries most addicted to social networks are those that are in full development, as shown in the graph. On the other hand, the first world countries or already developed countries are the most disconnected: the Germans spend only 1 hour and 15 minutes in networks, while the best of all is Japan with an average of only 45 minutes.
This research was carried out during the first quarter of 2019, with more than half a million participants aged 16 to 64. So, we cannot escape the horrible reality: we are slaves of Facebook.
