Washington: Despite the increased intrusion of social media in our lives, love for emails remains strong with 60 percent people checking their mail inbox even while watching TV, finds a survey. The “Adobe’s 2018 Consumer Email Survey” found that consumers are checking personal email every 2.5 hours on an average on a typical weekday and are spending an average of 3.1 hours checking work email.
Middle-aged people (25-34-year-old) spend most of their time in their inboxes — a whopping 6.4 hours per day. However, young consumers (18-24-year-olds) spend 5.8 hours, with 81 percent being obsessed with work email, even on vacation.
