The statistics are staggering. Sure, we’re pretty confident social media is not only beneficial to our work, it’s also a distraction. Thanks to Red e App’s new infographic, the numbers tell all.
In fact, employees are interrupted one time every 10.5 minutes and it will take about 23 minutes to return to an assigned task after the interruption. The average user spends 405 minutes on Facebook and 89 minutes on Twitter per month. Plus, reading and responding to e-mails on a daily basis consumes about 28 percent of an employee’s time.
Not only does it disrupt your day, it disrupts the economy as well to the tune of $650 billion lost dollars every year. Check out the infographic below!
