86% of Us Are Constantly Checking Our Emails, Texts, and Social Media

If you send someone a text and they don’t respond to you immediately, you should feel OFFENDED. Because the odds say they got the message and made the choice not to respond.

According to a new survey, 86% of people now say they’re pretty much CONSTANTLY checking their emails, texts, and social media throughout the day.

And we do that even though it’s making us crazy. 42% say that things they see on social media stress them out.

The survey also found how we’re trying to “unplug” . . . for at least a few hours a day.

28% of us don’t allow cell phones at the dinner table . . . 19% won’t use their phone when they’re with friends . . . and 19% have turned off the notifications for their social media apps.
