Did you know that it takes the average person 4 attempts to take a selfie that they’re confident enough to share online?
A recent survey of 1000 respondents conducted by Irish telecoms company eir aimed to explore some omnipresent yet somewhat unspoken (until now) mobile and internet usage habits.
The results from this study are intriguing and in some cases, a little odd as they cast an (oftentimes black) mirror back on society. For example if you’ve ever felt a little paranoid that someone might be reading your phone over your shoulder on the bus, you’re not alone! 28% of surveyed respondents admitted to reading another person’s phone over their shoulder on public transport, with 25 – 34-year old’s the most likely offenders.
Other insights derived from the study include the rise of ‘second screening’, texting the wrong person by accident, deleting your internet history and what we’d all be doing if the internet simply didn’t exist any more; some refreshingly unique insights to be sure!
