52% Of Students Often Check Their Phones Before Getting Out Of Bed
What is the first thing you do before getting out of bed? If you are like most students in America you probably roll over and check your cell phone. A whopping 52% of students admitted to checking their cell phones first thing in the morning.
That is the rather odd finding by Onlinecolleges.com which took a look at the behavior of college students with regard to mobile phone technology. It seems the general 50.4% increase in smartphone use across America has had the biggest impact on college students. Today most can’t do anything without their cell phone in tow and according to the study, their use of smartphones is matched heavily by the features and functionality that smartphones offer. In other words, students use smartphones the way they were designed to be used.
Email is now catching up with texting among students and to the typical college student these days, a cell phone is a must have in the toolkit of ‘right living’. 60% of 18-29 year olds said they have used a cell phone for dating. Contrast that with 65+ baby boomers which comes in at 23%. Cell phones are are also being used for the more practical day to day tasks like looking traffic reports, getting scores for sporting games and even deciding whether that burger should be had at Burger King or McDonald’s.
But perhaps the enduring legacy of the smartphone addict is the need to see what had taken place while one was asleep. The days of being detached from technology are well and truly over.
