Interesting Data
To me the most interesting part of this data was the separation of social media time and smartphone time. I am just about only ever on social media through my smartphone. I use a computer at work and not much any time else. Of course, when I get home I have two toddlers who are drawn to the computer if I'm on it, and that makes trying to do anything on the computer just about impossible. So I really only use it once I'm home if I absolutely have to - like if I need to print something. It surprises me that people aren't using social media on their phones more. 

I do agree that social media is going to change the amount of video watching via smartphones. Especially with Facebook Live being an ever-popular feature. I'm also a little curious about a likely surge in MLM. I think it was always a little popular between stay-at-home Mom's, but anymore, every Mom I think I know is involved in at least one MLM business, some are involved in multiple. And the ones that are really serious are all using Facebook Live. *eye rolls*

Waking Hours
I knew back in college that working a computer can damage eyesight and cause vision problems but no one believed me. Know everyone realizes what I knew all along. They are wear glasses now or have trouble seeing.

I was proactive and got glasses but retired them in exchange for a rigorous vitamin regimen that has greatly improved my vision.

Computer users and mobile device users should invest in protective gear for desktop and laptop screens and mobile devices to protect their eyes. Some options are anti-glare screens, take a break every 60 minutes and rest your eyes, take vitamins that promote eye health and vision, computer reading glasses, flat panel LCD monitor, and Gunnars glasses.

This problem also impact TV viewers.

Here is an article to reduce eye strain

Re: Staring at a Screen
I have made a point of keeping up with a "written" notebook just to try and keep my penmanship--although my son reminds me I am getting worst by the day!!    As for the "stat", for me it is more like 100% between my work at the Daily Outsider, research/engagement for my graduate work/etc. , it is quite higher--the only time, I suppose, is when I'm driving..and when my budget allows for a Tesla, that might change too!! :)

Got to laugh about it in the end..right!!?? :)

Mine too! It looks like I tried writing by holding a pen between my toes.

Re: Staring at a Screen
My handwriting has suffered a great deal since I spend most of my time typing.  As the saying goes, practice makes perfect and I feel like my hand has forgotten a lot!!

I agree! Handwriting never feels like it keeps up with what my brain wants to say (if that makes sense!)

Re: Staring at a Screen
@faryl I much prefer typing to handwriting. It's much faster, neater, and easier to modify without starting from the beginning.

Re: Staring at a Screen
LOL! I had a similar experience once I went to college, only without the typist to do it for me :) (And now I hate having to hand-write anything!)
