How Long Do New Jerseyans Spend Online Each Day?
If you have an iPhone, you can set up an alert that comes on Sunday morning telling you how much time you spent on your phone that week. Some weeks I'm proud of myself, other weeks I'm embarrassed, but most of the time I just tell myself "hey, you need to be online a lot for work, getting news and checking Facebook and blahblahblah."
Verizon crunched the numbers to find out which states spend the most time online every day. These numbers don't include time spent working, but do include time spent downloading files, using social media, browsing the web, and other leisure-related activities. Other activities excluded were gaming, online banking, and shopping.
Which state spends the most time online? Alaska at 2 hours 46 minutes per day. The least? Delaware at just 43 minutes. Where does New Jersey land? We come in at #20, with about 1 hour 31 minutes per day.
I get why Alaska would be so high, because there's not much else to do. Arkansas and Mississippi come in at #2 and #3, and again I get it, because what else is there to do in Arkansas or Mississippi? That logic fails me though, when you consider that people in Delaware spend the least time, because I can't imagine doing anything other than screwing around on Facebook or Instagram while in Delaware.
