Nowadays, Russians spend, on average, 4,8 hours a day. It is not so big number, but if we count that a day has 24 hours, we spend 9 hours for sleep, some more hours to eat, hobbies, relaxation, work/study and so on, we have very little time left and we spend it in social networks.
Nine out of ten Russian internet users have an active life in the internet. Four years ago 10% less Russians were active users. Mainly, Russians use such social networks as «V kontakte» and «Odnoklassniki». Facebook is on the third place. Lately, Google+ became more famous among Russians, its users among Russians increased twice .Only 25% of Russians use Twitter. As for Instagram though, every fifth Russian has it.
Russians use internet mostly to communicate and as a hobby, just some Russians use it for job search. It is necessary to say, that electronic life kills the real one, real people. The bright example of it is the application which appeared this year called Pokemon GO. Even though this application is not officially launched in Russia, people in Russia suffer from it already. Some people get overcome by cars in order to catch a seldom Pokemon. Some go too deep into the river and get drowned in order to catch a seldom water Pokemon. What is happening?
I understand, this topic is too often mentioned in mass media lately, but I would still like to say that spending time in social networks you kill yourself! Just understand: «Thousands of hearts, received in social networks are worth less than one act of kindness in real life!»
