The British “Daily Mail” reported on the 14th that the “type” of marketing companies made the above estimates based on data provided in a report by the British Communications Authority in June 2020. According to the report,The average British adult spends about 49 minutes per day browsing social media.“Type” estimates that about 92% of browsing is done on mobile terminals such as mobile phones, which is equivalent to about 45 minutes a day. The diagonal length of the mobile screen is about 25 cm, and it takes about 3 seconds to estimate each time the screen is swiped.The thumb slides on the screen for nearly 229 meters in one day, and the total sliding is more than 83 kilometers in one year, and the whole marathon is nearly 42.2 kilometers.
Rob Jones, the company’s social media director, said,This number is “shocking”, which shows that “social media has a great impact on people’s lives.”
The company also provides an online interactive game called “Thumb Run”, which allows the thumbs in sportswear to run on the digital track to help people understand the “volume of exercise” of the thumb more vividly.
Medical professionals have warned that excessive use of mobile phones can cause pain and even inflammation in the thumb, resulting in “mobile hands”. The smaller the screen, the greater the damage to the thumb. In order to avoid this kind of injury, experts recommend minimizing the use of mobile phones, using fingers such as index fingers instead of thumbs for typing, using more voice functions, and doing wrist and finger stretching every day.
