  • Pinterest and YouTube users get the worst sleep at night
  • Nearly 50% of Millennials have fallen asleep with their phone in hand
  • More than 1 in 10 people who used YouTube spent over 52 minutes watching videos before bed
  • 71% of people admitted to checking their smartphone before bed and more people check their phones in the morning before even making coffee
