Turkish university students spend over three hours per day using mobile apps: Survey

An average Turkish university student spends three hours and 16 minutes per day using mobile apps, according to a recent survey conducted by the Turkish consulting firm Startups.watch

Students from six Istanbul-based universities (Istanbul University, Kadir Has University, Koç University, Maltepe University, Marmara University and Yıldız Technical University) took part in the survey, Startups.watch co-founder Serkan Ünal told state-run Anadolu Agency.

Not surprisingly, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Snapchat are the core apps that university students most commonly use, spending on average 107 minutes of their time every day using these apps, Ünal said on Jan. 30.

“Students spend a daily average of 56 minutes on Instagram, 47 minutes on WhatsApp, and 21 minutes on YouTube,” he added.

Ünal also stated that university students listened to music for a daily average of 13 minutes and played games for 15 minutes per day through their smart phones, based on the results of the “University Youth Mobile Application Data Research 2017” project.

Time spent on WhatsApp had not changed in 2017 compared to the previous year, while the average time spent on Instagram jumped from 18 minutes to 56 minutes, Ünal stated.

For YouTube the average daily time spent by university students rose from four minutes to 21 minutes and for Snapchat it fell from 14 minutes to seven minutes.
