National Day of Unplugging

Tonight marks the start of a day called the National Day of Unplugging. This movement encourages people to disconnect from technology and connect with the offline world. For many tech savvy users the ideas of shutting off for 24 hours seems like eternity. No phone, Twitter, Facebook or apps.

To showcase how difficult it will be for Americans to turn off, we’ve included an infographic called Instant America which has statistics that showcase how quickly Americans expect to receive information in this digital era. After reading these stats, it’s no wonder that movements such as the National Day of Unplugging are taking place.

The infographic below highlights that, “Google found that slowing search results by just 4/10ths of a second would reduce the number of searches by 8,000,000 a day.”
