Brits spend 11 days as Face­book snoop

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A STAG­GER­ING 70 per cent of us have used so­cial me­dia sites to spy on some­one they know, a new study re­veals.

The av­er­age Brit ap­par­ently spends 43 min­utes a day – a to­tal of 262 hours or 11 whole days each year – snooping on other so­cial me­dia users.

Just over a third of the pub­lic – 36 per cent – turn to sites like Face­book and Twit­ter to check up on their part­ners.

The sur­vey by dig­i­tal TV chan­nel Re­ally, of more than 2,000 adults, found that fam­ily, friends and work col­leagues are the other main tar­gets tracked on­line with women be­ing nosier than men.

Even par­ents have been turned into hi-tech spies with three in 10 keep­ing tabs on their kids on so­cial me­dia sites.
