Here is a bit of interesting data…The University of Southern California School of Business in Los Angeles did a study in 2013 and determined that by 2015 the average household will use some type of digital media device, like a smartphone, computer, TV, iPad, etc, an average of 15.5 hours per day. WOW!! Unbelievable. Think of it this way, most of our waking hours will be spent engaged in some way with some piece of electronic gear. Okay, let’s add 8 hours, if we are all lucky, for sleep. So, 15.5 hours plus 8 hours equals, duh…..oh yeah….23.5 hours per day either sleeping or using some type of digital media device. That leaves 30 minutes, a half-hour to go to the toilet, eat, dress, and interact with other human beings. Is that possible?
I don’t know if I can believe this study from USC. It seems unbelievable. What do you think?
