4-5 hours a day on social media

How can it be possible?

That's a colossal chunk of someones day.

Perhaps the questions are what were they doing with that time before, and is not doing that thing going to be a problem?

IMO young people (myself included, sufficient years ago) do 'young people stuff', which includes listening to music, being depressed, hanging round with friends, playing computer games, watching crap tv, staring out of windows dreaming about 'getting out of here', etc.  They're probably just doing less of one or more of those and replacing it with social media.

Ban the phones from school and see if that figure goes down?

No children I know are allowed to as much as glimpse at their phones at school.

Really? 
 

Yes.  Normal comprehensive/secondary.  If they get their phone out during the day (including lunch) it'll be confiscated.

I'd love to see phone use stats of schoolies. Just to confirm this is the case.

In my day it was either “jumpers for goal posts” type stuff or being abused by Radio 1 DJ’s.

I'm sure that it could be different at other school areas.  Just not this area.

Our comp banned cars from the car park for certain times at the beginning and end of the school day because the head was concerned one of the children might have an accident whilst browsing their phone on the way out.

Finally, an answer to my perpetual question as to why everyone is so damned busy nowadays. If they aren't watching average 3 hours of TV a day they're spending 5 hours on Fakebook.

They check FB when they are in the restrooms.

Nobody is going to stop them going there.

Well except for Misslauren...
