Facebook insomnia

According to a new study the social networking giant is getting in the way of our sleep.

Due to facilities such as push notifications linked to smart phones, one in four users have been woken up by alerts from Facebook.

Britain’s 30million Facebook members apparently spend a full working week each year on the site while in bed, at an average of 21 minutes per person, per day.

Logging on to Facebook is now the second most common bedtime habit behind watching TV or DVDs. One in five said checking social media sites was the last thing they did before going to sleep – more than the proportion who kiss their partner good night.
