1 In 4 Struggle To Keep Up With Friends Because They Are Using Too Many Apps

Do you often get lost in all your phone apps? A YouGov survey found 25 percent of people reported struggling to keep up with friends because they are using too many apps.

The phenomenon is known as “app fog” and is caused by confusion when multiple apps are used to message friends. The survey found 33 percent said they’d missed a night out or an important event with friends as a result of this confusion, and 47 percent said they’d rather just use the messaging app if they could.

The data showed young people’s relationships were far more affected by app fog than older generations. App fog caused nearly 20 percent of young respondents to lose touch with a friend, compared to just five percent of those in the older age group.  (DailyMail)
