Social media at work: How much time do people spend on it?


Social media has become an integral part of our lives, and it’s no surprise that we’re bringing it into the workplace with us. But how much time are we actually spending on social media at work?

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

According to a recent survey by Zippia, the average employee spends 12% of their working hours using unproductive social applications. That’s about 52 minutes per day! Zippia’s survey also indicates that a whopping 77% of workers use social media at work.

Of course, not all social media use at work is unproductive. Some employees use it to stay connected with clients or colleagues, or to find new job opportunities. But for many, it is a way to pass the time or to escape from the stresses of work.

So, what’s the impact of all this social network use on productivity? In a study from Monster Worldwide, 48 percent of U.S. employees said they spend up to four hours each day on social media for personal use during work hours.

Of course, not all employees are created equal. Some people are more easily distracted by socials than others. And the type of work you do can also play a role. For example, employees who work in creative or customer-facing roles may find that social media helps them to be more productive.
