People are spending much less time on social media apps

People are spending less time on social media apps, in some cases substantially less, a new study from marketing intelligence firm SimilarWeb found.

The company compared Android users' daily time spent on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat from January to March 2016 with the same period in 2015. The firm looked at data from the U.S, UK, Germany, Spain, Australia, India, South Africa, Brazil and Spain.

Facebook's Instagram saw the biggest year-over-year drop — usage was down 23.7 percent this year, closely followed by Twitter (down 23.4 percent), Snapchat (down 15.7 percent) and Facebook (down 8 percent), the study found. ...

"Nothing new to see hear, folks," is what you could say after comparing this story to Paul's experience in Athens, where they spent all their time searching after what was new.

Man hasn't changed much over the years, though the technology has. Perhaps there is an addictive aspect to having the info so readily accessible, especially in places where you don't have lots of personal contact (compare to Paul looking at the Athenians talking with each other, inquiring about what is new. I don't think they sat around in sidewalk cafes, sipping coffee and reading the daily newspapers.
There used to be a morning and evening newspaper in many large cities, and people would read both!)

I could even cite an example at church where I saw one person 'drop out' of an active conversation that involved him at the start.
When it wasn't him doing the talking or being questioned, he picked up his phone and started reading it, and he is not a heart surgeon waiting for a call from the hospital.

Hi SF and Anne, thanks, and I meant to wrap everything I said around the word, "addition", which is why I have trouble with the stats. There are actually treatment centers popping up around the country to treat social media addiction. Somr are so severe that they just can't be without their smartphone fir hardly a moment, while others may be a bit stronger, but are in social media from the moment their eyes open in the morning until they crawl back into bed at night. I just described my wife on that last one, and it's really something to see how what I consider mostly nonscense can consume people. We have enough stress in our lives, living in this world, and to be worried about why you didn't get more likes on your new selfie, or not enough, or negative responses to a comment, or whatever, on top of it? The time invested on social media is ridiculous, and for what?

I, too, have my doubts Christopher. Out here we have had three incidents in as many weeks of "extreme" use of electronic media - people either taking selfies or props for social media postings. Two resulted in the death of baby animals and the other wrecked one of the gorgeous paint pots in Yellowstone. We see these a lot out here actually - just to get their face in a picture for their social media page de jour. If the usage is down, what other social media is being utilized instead? They're somewhere, addicted to something... Reminds me of the Romans at the pinacle of their "success" and how self absorbed they were, to their own detriment and those around thtem.

Hmmm, first of all, who cares, but that aside, I would like to know more details because I find it really hard to believe. As each kids gets older, makes more friends, and gets involved in more activities, etc, etc, the social media usage increases. Not only kids, but it seems to be one big competition for adults as well. Who can get the most likes, comments, the best selfie, who's on vacation, where, who's out having the most fun partying at the best spot and with the most friends, and the list goes on and on. I see it increasing as an addiction, sucking in everyone it can because people feel left out, or not a part of the crowd, etc, if they don't folkow suit. Seems like a competition tosee who can get the mmost friends and followers as well.
