Social Media Making Millennials Less Social

Yet another study that proves that, if you are a millennial, social media turns you into an introverted, socially awkward hermit. Hey, don't blame me, I'm not the one that conducted the survey. wink

Those are the findings of a new survey, which showed that as millennials spend more time engaged on social media platforms, it's causing them to be less social in real life. The study, conducted by Flashgap, a photo-sharing application with more than 150,000 users, found that 87 percent of millennials admitted to missing out on a conversation because they were distracted by their phone. Meanwhile, 54 percent said they experience a fear of missing out if not checking social networks.
