Our life on the phone


Thankfully, there’s been a lot of research done on this recently. We’ll share that research below, and give you a breakdown on what it means for our day-to-day lives.

So, how much time do people spend on their mobile phones in 2017? Let’s dig in!

What are we doing on our phones?Everything!We use our mobile phones for entertainment, to connect with friends and colleagues, to stay informed, to shop, and for just about everything else!

At least 81% of American adults now own a smartphone, and these devices have become an integral part of both our work and personal lives.

We spend an average of 1 hour, 56 minutes on the top 5 social media platforms alone. The top 5 being (by usage):

  1. YouTube
  2. Facebook
  3. Snapchat
  4. Instagram
  5. Twitter

And according to comScore’s 2017 Future in Focus report, 66% of that time takes place on smartphones. (Only 21% of social media time takes place on a desktop.) 

Actual Communication

It’s amazing how the purpose of mobile phones has changed through the years. They started as another way to communicate, and now they’re tools to experience the whole world from your fingers!

As social media, entertainment, search, and shopping take up larger portions of our time, how much time are we spending on actual communication?
