According to the Digital 2023 Global Overview Report, we spend an average of 6 hours a day surfing the Internet. That’s almost half of the time we spend awake! But… what do we do during all those hours? Productivity seems not to be our thing, as our favorite activities are still watching YouTube crawl videos, sending WhatsApp messages, writing on Facebook or making a TikTok to get more and more followers.
