Chance and Jordan talk about the negative impacts of social media on individuals and society as a whole. They reveal some alarming statistics on the specifics of how the lives of teens have been affected since the release of the iPhone in 2007, including:
- The percentage of teens who EVER go out on dates has fallen about 15%.
- The number of times teenagers hang out with their friends per week had been relatively steady for about 30 years. Since 2007, these numbers are down about 16%.
- The percentage of 12th graders who drive has fallen 5% since 2007.
Before 2007, the percentage of high schoolers who felt lonely or left out has been steadily decreasing for nearly 20 years. Since 2007, these percentages have sharply increased (about 10%).
- The percentage of high schoolers who don’t get enough sleep had been falling for about 6 years until 2007. Since 2007, these numbers have increased by 5%.
