Completely Predictable Survey Reveals We Are Way, Way Too Hooked on Our Phones
It’s official – we’re iAddicts.
A new Harris Interactive survey of more than 2,000 people shows just how hooked on our cell phones we’ve become.
Consider these frightening findings:
- 55% say they can’t put their phones down while they're behind the wheel of a car
- One-third cop to using their phones at the movies or while eating dinner with someone else
- 20% have used their phone in a house of worship
- 10% take a peek at their phone while showering or during sex
And when we do take the time to put our phones down, we don’t put them too far out of reach – 72% say they keep their device about five feet away.
For those rare times we manage to take our phones out of our hands, we sure know how to keep busy. That’s because 29% admit to looking through someone else’s phone.
Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to go text everyone we know about this.
