Brits spend 11 days as Facebook snoop
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.
