As per a 2011 study released by CourseSmart and Wakefield Research, 38% of college students can’t go 10 minutes without checking their email, tablet or smart phone. A 2010 survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation reported that a significant majority of kids and teens spend about 75% of their waking hours attached to a screen of some sort. A Nielsen 2010 study shows that American teens send or receive 3,339 texts a month. That’s 6+ texts for every hour they’re awake. It wouldn’t be wrong to assume these numbers have doubled by now.
