How attached are we to our computers? [infographic]

infographics logoI know that I am very attached to my computer, well actually to any of my devices will do in a pinch since they are all computers of various sorts.

The average person spends 66 hours per month on their computer. I think I may be just a tad (ha!) higher in hours than that! Although, this is what I do for a living so I have a good reason, right?

Do the statistics below fit you? Which are you most surprised about?

I think 66 hours is a bit low for me too!
I am somewhat surprised that work research was the most common usage listed.

At least the bosses of the world would be happy that folks are researching work on their computers instead of just doing facebook and playing games at their desks all day LOL Subject: [robynsonlineworld] Re: How attached are we to our computers? [infographic]

Interesting graph!

love, love, love my computer so for sure I spend more than 66 hours. 30 days average by 3 hours per night would sure be a cut above.

I spend way too much time online! Now I can see that fact in graphic form, LOL. Thanks for always providing cool stuff, Robyn.

True Confessions: I now spend too much time flying round and round online too! But I worry about this generation of children not getting enough real social play and outdoor time!

I spend a lot of time online but don’t know what else I’d do now that my kids are grown.

I depend on the internet a lot. I research food’s, medicine’s, home remedies, everything. I love my social media, OMG, I couldn’t even imagine not having a FB account. Sometimes though, when inquiring about something or a product, they automatically assume you have internet access and sometimes that’s not the case. They always say, go check us out online, okay, there are a very few people who go without internet for several reason’s. Maybe they can’t afford or even a computer, it’s possible.
