Americans Look At Their Phones 96 Times A Day

We all know we’re addicted to our phones but you probably don’t realize just how often you look at your device each day, and it’s really kinda scary.

According to a new survey:

  • Americans look at their phones 96 times a day.
  • That translates to once every ten minutes.
  • That’s a 20% increase from a similar survey conducted two years ago.

The survey also finds:

  • The number one reason folks use their phone is to stay connected with family and friends.
  • Texting is the thing most people use their phones for, and that is across all age groups, even Baby Boomers.
  • 90% of Americans are offended when someone starts looking at their phone when they are speaking to them.
  • Although three quarters of people admit they’ve looked at their phone when someone was speaking, with 20% doing it frequently.
