Social media defines beauty | Fashion | Scoop.it
According to Dove’s research, 82% of women now believe that social media has more of an impact on their standard of beauty than traditional media. If this study reflects a wider trend, it could mean the balance of power in defining beauty is tipping in the direction of the consumer?

How many times do you check your phone? Twice a day? Once every hour? More often? According to figures collected by a screen lock app, the average user actually checks their phone around 110 times day.

During peak times this equates to once every six or seven seconds, with some users unlocking their devices up to 900 times over the course of a day, which in reality is around 18 hours.

The information was collected by Android app Locket, which monitored how many times its 150,000 users checked their phone over in a day.


According to data compiled by New York-based app Locket, the average user checks their phone around nine times an hour at peak times. On average, users unlock their phone 110 times a day and a quarter of people actively use their handsets during the hours of 3am and 5am

COULD THIS FIGURE BE HIGHER?
Although 110 times a day seems a high figure, other research suggests it may be even higher.

A study by Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers found the average user checks their phone nearer to 150 times per day.

In its annual Internet Trends report, carried out in May this year, found that people check their phones, on average, 23 times a day for messaging, 22 times for voice calls and 18 times to get the time.

The New York-based app pays users in return for showing adverts on their lockscreens.

According to the data, an average user checks their device - which means they activate the screen by pressing the home or power button or they unlock the device - 110 times per day.

In one particular case, a Locket user locked and unlocked their phone up to 900 times.

During peak hours, when users are most active, between 5pm and 8pm, over 75 per cent of people unlock their phones and actively use them.

During off peak hours - between 3am and 5am - this figure drops to 24 per cent but still shows a quarter of people are using their devices in the early hours.

At peak times, the average person checks their device around nice times an hour. Off peak, this drops to four times an hour.


This graph shows how many adverts are served by the Locket app over the course of a day. The number of advert impressions correlates to the number of people who are unlocking their devices at that time. Peak times are shown between 5pm and 8pm

As noted by Buzzfeed's Charlie Warzel, this figure may be higher among Locket users because the app gives people a monetary incentive to unlock their device.

Although he goes on to quote a study by Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers which found the average user actually checks their phone nearer to 150 times per day.

In their annual Internet Trends report carried out in May this year, the researchers narrowed the results down.

It found that people check their phones, on average, 23 times a day for messaging, 22 times for voice calls and 18 times to get the time.

Finding the Luxury in Mass Customisation - BoF - The Business of Fashion

Finding the Luxury in Mass Customisation - BoF - The Business of Fashion | Fashion | Scoop.it
LONDON, United Kingdom — Once upon a time, luxury goods makers delivered individualised products to customers based on the buyer’s personal preferences, tastes and budget. It was a process that often involved a series of face-to-face interactions between individual clients and the skilled artisans who would craft the goods. But as mass production began to replace craft production as the dominant form of economic activity, the voice of the individual customer was mostly removed from the equation at all but the highest levels of the product pyramid. Indeed, Henry Ford, who is credited with inventing assembly line production, once said: … More
