A new report from research agency Millward Brown shows that Asia-Pacific users spend more time glued to computer, mobile and television screens than any other region.
A typical user in Asia logs 439 minutes, or over 7 hours, of screen media per day compared with the global average of 417 minutes. Out of those 7 hours, Asians spend nearly 2 hours looking at a second digital screen while watching television.
With the advent of new digital devices, multi-screening – the use of more than one digital screen at the same time – has increasingly become the preferred method to consume news, entertainment and data.
Asian users spend 317 minutes (over 5 hours) every day using different types of screens, just above the 308 minute global average.
