Children lose one night of sleep a week due to excessive social network addiction


A small study by De Montfort University in the United Kingdom found that children lose one night of sleep each week due to excessive social network addiction. In the study of 60 children under the age of 12, 70% use social media more than four hours a day, two-thirds use social apps two hours before bedtime, and 12.5% ​​wake up at night for app notifications. According to NHS guidelines in the UK, children should get between 9 and 11 hours of sleep a night, and the average child surveyed slept 8.7 hours a night, losing the equivalent of one night’s sleep a week. TikTok has the highest usage rate, used by 90% of children, followed by Snapchat with 84% usage rate and Instagram with more than 50% usage rate.
