Two-thirds of workers in the United States say they check social media while on the job, according to recent research from Bambu by Sprout Social.

The report was based on data from an online survey of 1,000 workers in the United States conducted between July 21, 2016 and July 23, 2016.

Two-thirds (67%) of respondents say they regularly check social media while at work.

Some 19% say they spend 0-15 minutes per day, on average, doing so; 17% say they spend 15-30 minutes doing so.

One in five respondents say they spend more than an hour per day, on average, using social media while at work.

Some 41% of workers say they check social media during lunch, and 40% say they check intermittently throughout the day; 22% say they check social media at the end of the workday, and 12% say they do so during bathroom breaks.
