A world of Media

Just read this on the BBC website:
"The average American spends more time using media such as TV and the internet than sleeping, a study has found.

US researchers found that Americans spend nine hours a day watching TV, using the web or talking on a mobile.

One-third of that time is devoted to using two or more media at once, noted Bob Papper, a Ball State University professor who co-authored the report.

"This is arguably in excess of anything we would have envisaged 10 years ago," Prof Papper said."

Is it right that it is normal to spend so much time watching TV listening to music etc. Don't you think we are becoming a more antisocial society because of the advance in technology and media?

  • It has been said that this generation is connected to everyone with so many mediums but so offten fail to communicate anything.
    I found when my computer broke last month that I was at a loss of what to do with myself. Not because there wasn't anything to do but just because I'd got used to using my computer for various forms of entertainment. It was actually really nice in some ways to be forced to find other things to do.
    Technology is great but a dependancy on, or over use of it is not so great.
    Sad to say though that those figures were not that suprising.
