Everyone knows that kids today spend too much time on their phones . . . including KIDS TODAY.

According to a new report by the Pew Research Center, 38% of teenagers acknowledge that they spend “too much” time on their phones . . . and 27% admit they spend too much time on social media.  Teen girls are more likely to admit they’re spending too much time on those things than teen boys.

39% of teens say they’ve cut back on social media . . . although they didn’t ask how many of those cuts have stuck.

That said, more than half say they spend “about the right amount” of time on phones and social media, and more than 60% haven’t cut back on them.

A whopping 95% of American teens say they have access to a smartphone . . . and in a separate study, about 33% of teens say they use at least one of the five major social media platforms . . . YouTube, TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook . . . “almost constantly.”
