How long could you go without using social media?
Kat, Marketing Communications Team Leader – “I probably spend 1-2 hours on social media a day, mostly Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. It’s become habitual and I would love to reduce my time on there! I think I could go a week without it, but it would be a struggle!”
Carl, SEO Executive – “I spend about 15 minutes on social media a day, mainly Facebook, just catching up on people’s lives. I think I could go a few weeks without it, but after that I would start feeling a bit out of the loop (especially with events).”
Claire, Membership Services Executive – “I think I spend about 40 minutes on social media a day. I could probably go a couple of weeks without it, I generally like it because you get to catch up on news (media and friends), new products that are being released and upcoming events!”
Ben, Junior Software Engineer – “I spend around 30/45 mins a day on Facebook. Mainly to watch some 9gag posts or see my favourite press news posts. I can survive maybe a week or two without it.”
Ellen, Marketing Communications Executive – “I’m a major scroller, probably spending 1.5 to 2 hours a day. (Instagram and Snapchat is my weakness!) I would like to say I can go a few days without it, but I would probably give in before. I use it for motivation and inspiration so I turn to it whenever I need a boost!”
Gavin, SEO Executive – “I’ll check daily, probably only for 10 – 15 mins a day though, mainly Facebook and Instagram. On holiday I can usually go a week without it as I don’t get any signal! I could probably go a week without it at home if I had to…”
Jen, Business Development Executive – “I’m a bit of a social media addict, easily a good couple of hours a day! However, when I go on holiday I rarely use it. I reckon I could go without it for a week or two if I had too, but I do like to see what everyone is up to, and do enjoy the funny and cute videos to pass time!”
