A daily portion of television and videos of 4 hours and 46 minutes

Prof. dr. Lieven De Marez is not surprised that some people spend 10,5 hours a day on social media. "Why the figures are so high is due to two trends. Firstly, since the 90s , with the rise of the (mobile) internet, we have started to consume much more media: more video, more games, more conversations via chat and WhatsApp. Secondly, we started multitasking. It could be that we watch TV for an hour and at the same time we check social media on our smartphone. That is an hour that counts double in the statistics. Add to this the constant availability of media and the picture is complete.".
