Lisa Brown's insight:

This article is very interesting as not only does it discuss how often we are using our phones and what we are using them for, it also delves into the peak times that it is being used. Whilst this article is talking about the more general 'checking your phone' rather than 'checking social media', it still touches on the important topic of how often we are connecting with the cyber world without realising it. The source has authority as it has included its facts from a recent survey and referenced them accordingly. I have placed it further down the list as it does not solely talk about social media use.

Social media usage Australia Every couple of months or so I like to look at the available statistics for social media usage and develop some insights for my articles.

It is shaping the way we live. So let’s look at the evidence. The digital analytics company Experian published a report in April this year that analysed…
