Nearly everybody in Britain lies on their smartphones, and this infographic has the stats to prove it
In some cases, it is imperative to have a proper excuse for dodging someone's call. The infographic says that the most popular one was 'My phone was on silent' (56%), with ‘I had no signal’ (25%), ‘Sorry, in a meeting’ (9%), and ‘My phone is broken' (5%) trailing behind. In this line of thought, the most common reason for people to sidestep calls and texts is to avoid an event they don’t want to attend. Classic introvert move, right there!
Everybody lies.CMM founder and director Ashley Turner reflected upon the results with his usual lines of wisdom – “While technology brings us closer together by allowing us to talk to people on the other side of the world, it also opens a whole new gateway to lies which can be told.” It's hard not to side with him in this case!
The short but entertaining infographic is available for your viewing pleasure in the gallery below.
