At this point, the time spent on mobile devices keeps growing rapidly. Reason for us, Influencer Agency to investigate the actual time spent on mobile devices among some of our most popular influencers. 

The average time influencers vs. non-influencers spend on a mobile device

According to a study among 1.053 of our most popular influencers (more than 50K followers), the average time our influencers spend on a mobile device is 9:02 hours (i.e. 542 minutes) per day. In comparison, research by eMarketer found that the average consumer in the US spends 3:43 hours (i.e. 223 minutes) on a mobile device per day.

To establish this bizarre amount of screen time, our influencers pick up their mobile devices hundreds of times a day, to be specific 342 times. Compared to 52 times* for US consumers / non-influencers. What a difference!
