Visiting Facebook 14 Times A Day Through Smartphone! That’s Addiction

Before the launch of Facebook’s first phone on Thursday, it’s a good time to take a look at our daily Facebook usage stats using mobile devices. A survey done by IDC, sponsored by Facebook, has revealed some interesting facts.


The study tapped 7,446 iPhone and Android users in the U.S. aged between 18 to 44 years aksed them questions about their phone usage across one week in March. The results that came out were pretty interesting.

Around 79% of users reach for their mobile phone within 15 minutes of waking up. About 62% grab their phones even before 15 minutes. The number increases with the decrease in age group.

Facebook app holds the position of the third most used app by smartphone users, after email and web browser. More than half of the users visit Facebook every day.

The peak time of Facebook usage is during the evening, but any time is good enough. On average, we visit Facebook 13.8 times a day. And, we do that from almost any place – for example, during shopping, while preparing a meal, during a movie.

The addiction of Facebook seems just too much. But does that mean we are ready for a Facebook-centric phone? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
