Cool Infographic Reveals Social Media Habits Of Teenagers

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

We all know the kids these days can’t live without their social media, and a new infographic from Letterbox shows just how dependent today’s young people are on their technology.

Among myriad statistics, the infographic reveals your average teen consumes no less than 10 hours and 45 minutes of media across all platforms every day (including an average of five hours a day on the Internet). 10% of teens also spend  a whopping ten hours a day online, and, of course, the parents don’t know. They think their kids spend an average of 3 hours surfing the web.

Is such constant exposure a good thing or a bad thing? On one hand, the Internet can act as a big-time mood enhancer; as explained in the infographic, social media makes teens feel more confident, popular, sympathetic, and, ironically, outgoing. Conversely, 45% of teens get frustrated with friends who chat or text too often, and 43% wish they could unplug, painting a portrait of rampant addiction. It’s an interesting point.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go tweet about all this while you check out all the stats below:
