Internet has come about to be a critical part of our lives, one which we can’t separate ourselves from no matter where we are or what we are doing. This couldn’t be more obvious than the recent finding that when in restroom, 21 percent adults in the age bracket 18 – 24 admit that they perform some kind of social media activity.
This should not really come as a surprise to many. The mobile devices of a vast populace are hooked up to their social media accounts. And most of us have a knack of updating our status, sending out tweets or commenting on latest news while on the go.
So should this change even when we are in the restroom? In fact, it seems that people in the age bracket 25 – 34 agree even more to this notion. 25 percent of U.S. adults hailing from that age bracket stand ‘guilty of the charge’.
The study didn’t go into the details of the in-restroom social media activity of these individuals. It may be confined to fleeting status updates or tweets – or they may have more details interactions on their social media accounts straight from the loo. The study was conducted by NM Incite.
Commenting on the results of the study, Vice President of NM Incite, Deirdre Bannon stated, “Social media is truly everywhere in people’s lives. It is so ingrained and has touched every facet of everything we do all day long. We are literally taking our phones with us to the bathroom and connecting on social media.”
