Fourteen is the number of times smartphone users check their Facebook a day.

  • The total daily average mobile time on the site via our smartphones is half an hour.
  • Facebook is the third most popular app on smartphones, after email and the browser
  • Around 47 per cent of respondents say they look at Facebook while working out at the gym

 

Good news for people who think they are Facebook fanatics. Unless you’re checking the social media site at least 14 times a day, you’re actually BELOW the national average.

The results from a survey may confirm suspicions about how much smartphones have become an integral part of our lives.

It seems that 79 per cent of smartphone users check for their devices within 15 minutes of waking up.

A majority – 62 per cent – don’t even wait 15 minutes, and grab their phones immediately. (Among 18-24 year olds, the numbers rise to 89 per cent and 74 per cent.)

The research by IDC was sponsored by Facebook, which is the third most popular app on smartphones, after email and the browser.

Around 70 per cent of smartphone users are frequent Facebook visitors, with more than half of them checking it every day.

Peak Facebook time is during the evening, just before bed. On average, we visit the Facebook app or the site 13.8 times during the day, for two minutes and 22 seconds each time. The total daily average mobile time on the site via our smartphones is half an hour.

That’s roughly a fifth of all the time we spend communicating; it’s only slightly less time than we spend texting. On weekends, we check Facebook more than we text.

Almost half of Facebook users check on updates while out and about. The gym is one of the most popular places, with 48 per cent accessing the site. Some 46 per cent of us check it when we’re shopping or running errands.

And a surprisingly high number of us checking while preparing a meal – nearly half of all respondents – at 47 per cent.

Movie etiquette has certainly changed since the advent of smartphones as 50 per cent of users say they have checked Facebook while at the movies.

It seems that many people are using the social media site for useful purposes – around half browse news feeds, while the rest of the time is divided fairly evenly between Facebook messaging and posting updates.

Half of Facebook users play games via the service on their phone a few times a day.
