Study finds social networking taking up toilet time
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Blame social media the next time it feels like forever for your turn to use the toilet.
According to a study released Monday, 32 per cent of people in the United States aged 18 to 24 say they use social networking in the bathroom.
The same report from marketing research firms Nielsen and NM Incite also found that 51 per cent of US adults between 25 and 34 use social networking in the office - more than any other age group.
While personal computers remain the primary tools for logging onto sites like Facebook and Twitter, the report - posted at blog.nielsen.com - noted a significant increase in the use of cellphones and tablets as well.
