Research has found social media-obsessed Britons spend more than 20 days a year scrolling through the likes of Facebook and Twitter.
The results showed that the average British adult spends 81 minutes a day scrolling through social media – adding up to nearly 21 days a year.
Some 83% of participants admitted to checking the websites each day. Meanwhile, 68 % said they watched TV shows and films online, spending an average of 145 minutes a day doing so, making it the most time-consuming activity. The results found a further 82 % of participants shopped online every day.
Ana Sowerby, of Coral Casino, which conducted the research, said: ‘The way we spend our free time has changed dramatically over the last ten years.’
All in all, 95 percent said they used the internet on a daily basis. Londoners spent the most time online, with an average of 151 minutes – more than two and a half hours – used to browse the web each day.
