How often are you using you phone?
According to AntiSocial’s developer Chris Eade, Australian men and women spend about two hours a day on their phones, and that is not including use for music streaming, video streaming, or making calls – that is pure Facebook, web surfing, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Snapchat. In fact Australian men are the biggest users of phones globally.
Chris describes that the addictive nature of phone use and the design of apps are having a significant impact on our lives.
“[People] feel that their lives are being encroached upon by devices, their social lives, maybe their relationships with their loved ones and friends. They’re not experiencing nature. They’re not exercising.”
