A recent study has found Britains spend more time on social media than on holiday, here’s what else you could be doing with that screen time.
A recent study by Monarch Airlines found that Britains spend 22 days per year on social media and 39 days watching TV/films. This is undoubtedly true of the LGBT community within the UK. Vada sees a continuous stream of tweets and Instagram posts declaring last night’s events on Canal Street, the latest kink outfit purchased, or just those photos to quench a #thirstythursday – a lot of the community is spending a lot of time posting content. So what?
Well the survey also found that the average Brit also only spends only 16 days on holiday. That’s less than the typical allowance for a full time job. And of those who didn’t use their full allowance the excuse of half was because “they didn’t have time”.

This can free up a huge amount of time, and over the course of the year this really adds up – enough for a holiday. Or better yet, share those thirst quenching photos from your holiday!
