Here's an interesting infographic from Mashable
It seems we are suffering from Fear of Missing Out (FOMO), and as such are more tied to social media than ever! I see myself in a lot of these stats.
- Like 51% of the population, I manage 3 e-mail accounts (well 4 if you count an old aol account that I check periodically just in case);
- I don't check my social networks as soon as I wake up (as does 27% of the population), but I do as soon as I sit at my desk and turn on my computer for the day;
- Like 35% of you, I spend at least 31 minutes responding to email, writing on my blog(s), on Facebook, Pinterest, etc;
- I have multiple Facebook pages, twitter accounts and blogs (as does 42% of the population). I have one set for my personal passion--wellness. My personal blog can be found here, along with the corresponding Facebook page, and another set for my professional side --like this blog, and this FB page!)
However I'm not sure I am afraid of missing out. It's more like I want to stay in touch with what is going on! (Is that the same thing?) And I don't plan to stop or "take a vacation" from my social network sites. I enjoy writing on my blogs and keeping up with my friends on Facebook.
