Americans Spend 11 Hours A Day With Electronic Media

from
,

It's no secret that people spend a lot of time with electronic gadgets these days. How much time that actually is, is astonishing nonetheless: according to Nielsen's most recent Cross-Platform Report, Americans aged 18 and older spend almost 11 hours per day watching TV, listening to the radio or using smartphones and other electronic devices. Considering that most people are awake 16 to 18 hours a day, 11 hours of electronic media seems like a lot, but it needs to be noted that some of that media consumption happens simultaneously. Good thing we were given the ability to multitask, otherwise we wouldn't get a whole lot done.
