Second ScreenHello there! Are you reading this on your smart phone or laptop? Are you also watching TV by any chance? If you did answer yes to both those questions, or if you often surf the web while you watch TV… Congratulations! You are officially part of the Second Screen generation.

‘Second Screen’ is the new phenomenon of browsing the web while watching TV. 88% of American tablet owners report that they look at two screens at the same time – that’s not even taking smart phones and laptops into consideration!

What about Europe? Which country comes out on top? Yes you guessed correctly, Brits are the Kings and Queens of ‘Second Screen’, with 80% of smartphone users, 81% of tablet users and 73% of laptop users watching the TV while they search the web. This is compared to 74% of French people, 54% of Belgians, 41% of Germans, 39% of Spaniards, just to give you a quick taster. In fact, the European average is 48%.

So, Second Screen is a wide-spread phenomenon. But is that a good thing? Are we becoming better at multitasking? Or instead is everyone becoming more anti-social?
