Mobile and the internet’s ever-increasing role in our lives is drawing out some behaviors that are… well… quite strange. A recent survey of 1000 respondents intended to explore these strange and, until now, unspoken mobile and internet habits. The results were revealing.
For instance, did you know that it takes the average person 4 attempts to take a selfie that they’ll share on social media? Meanwhile, have you ever felt a little paranoid that someone might be reading your phone over your shoulder on the bus. Well, it turns out you’re not paranoid. 28% of people admit to reading another person’s phone over their shoulder on public transport, with 25 to 34-year-olds the most likely culprits.
Other insights in the study include the prevalence of “second screening”, texting the wrong person, clearing internet history and what we’d all be doing if the internet didn’t exist at all. To know more, look at the statistics below.
