Screen-time use on phones

One in five people between 16 and 21 use their phones for 6 hours or more every day.

A leading developmental psychologist says it could be down to a 'fear of missing out'.

This study by Young Social Innovators has found that the average person between 16 and 21 spends 4 hours on their phones per day.

When it comes to minimal use, only 3% claimed they use their phone for less than an hour.

The survey of 458 young people also found that 60% believe social media has had a positive impact on their lives.

The research is part of a wider study based around Generation Z, which was first launched in May.
