Almost everyone, and their moms, know about Facebook. Not out of utility, but out of necessity. It has infiltrated our lives so deep, that the need to stay connected is adamant.
There’s no doubt social media enables us to organize our real-world relationships, and even meet new people outside the digital realm — both of which can be great, life-enhancing things.
But could social networking have an adverse effect on our quality of life?
This is the question the answer to which we explore in today’s infographic.
Consider these facts and findings as produced by this infographic:
- Everyday, time equivalent to 19,963 years is being spent on Facebook – excluding mobile visits.
- Indians and Americans spend almost equal times on Facebook each day.
- 39% of people prefer socializing online than face-to-face.
