We hear a lot about millennials’ social media addiction, but a study by Nielsen reported in the New York Times found Generation X spends more time on social media than its younger counterparts. A Gen Xer spends on average six hours and 58 minutes per week on social media, the study found. That compares with the six hours and 19 minutes spent on average by millennials. In contrast, adults ages 50 and over spend four hours and nine minutes per week on social media.
