Smartphone addiction. The acceleration is happening very fast. Today, one in three Internet users worldwide is a child, and young people are now the most connected of all age groups. In the US, 93 percent of 13-17 year olds go online daily, with many never powering down. About 75% have smartphones.
Adults are almost as addicted: the average American checks their phones about 150 times-a-day. Obsessive screen use has been linked to relationship problems, depression, attention deficit disorder and traffic fatalities.
Global Affairs Analyst and writer Michael Bociurkiw has been studying the impact of smartphones and social media on humanity. His work will appear in his first nonfiction book in 2019 called ‘Digital Crack.’
Michael is a global affairs analyst, speaker and writer. He is a two-time TEDx speaker and a frequent commentator on BBC World, CNN International and Al Jazeera. His commentaries on global affairs, humanitarian issues and technology are published regularly on CNN Opinion. His byline has appeared in Forbes, the Los Angeles Times, the South China Morning Post, Asia Times and MSNBC.
He has delivered impactful talks at several prominent international gatherings including the Halifax International Security Forum, the World Communications Forum in Istanbul and Geneva, the Oxford University Alumni conference in Vienna, and the Atlantic Council (Washington, DC).
Michael also has had a distinguished career in many international organizations – including as spokesperson for UNICEF and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.
