PGI Screen Fiends

It should come as no surprise that we spend most of our day in front of some sort of screen. Between the smart phones, computers, tablets, and TVs — the screen has become an intermediary for how we interact with the world around us.

Based on an infographic by PGi, the average American spends more than 12 hours in front of a screen, and more than 20 percent of that time is spent on social media. In fact, 50 percent of that screen time is spent being entertained in some way, including video streaming and reading.
