It’s no secret that teenagers love their smartphones. It might even be safe to say that they couldn’t go a day without them, according to a recent survey done by USA Today. There are enough apps to keep the average teenager glued to their phone for hours on end and the most beloved apps are the ones that are social in nature. Apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and SnapChat keep teens in the loop with their friends all day long, without ever missing a beat.

The infographic below by TeenSafe.com takes you through a day in the life of a social teenager, starting with the moment they wake up and ending with their head on the pillow, smartphone in hand. Is it becoming a problem that teens are so connected to the mobile world? Parents may have to answer this for themselves, but it’s certainly something to consider. If we’re at this point now with teens and their social apps, who knows where we’ll be just five years down the line.
