Social media offsetting

According to Ofcom, people in the UK spend nearly half of their waking hours consuming media (45%). During that time, almost a quarter of it is spent using social media (23%). That means, on average, people are spending just over 10% of their waking lives using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and their ilk.

10% of your life! That’s nuts right?

Not when you consider that 6.5% of your life is spent waiting.

Why not offset your waiting time against your social media usage and win some hours back in your day to go white water rafting or to write that novel?

That’s the real power of mobile computing.

I’m off to order my iPhone HTC Desire.

  1. Waiting at the bus stop, at the shops, in the car (not driving) and other times too. Ideally I’d actually be spending this time doing fun stuff, but that’s not likely given how spread out we’ve become (around the world).

  2. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be really something that I feel I’d never understand. It seems too complex and extremely huge for me. I’m looking
    ahead in your subsequent put up, I’ll try to get the grasp of it!
