Britons are now spending more time using technology devices than they spend sleep.

Ofcom said that the average British adult spends eight hours and 41 minutes per day using high-tech gadgetry. But they sleep for eight hours and 21 minutes. The communications regulator reports that 16-24-year-olds spend over 14 hours on their gadgets by making use of different gadgets and social media. 

The average adult multi-tasker, meanwhile, spends over 11 hours a day making use of their electronic devices. This number has risen by over two hours since 2010. More than 70 per cent of Brits spend more time using smartphones, tablets and PCs than they do chatting face-to-face with family, friends and colleagues.
