“People added digital video time, mobile time and social media time to their days, until the average American was spending more than half their daily 24 hours with some type of media.

“It seemed like that pattern could go on for years, with new media options continuing to grow. But now the trend is on the cusp of stagnating.

“Time spent with media growth has slowed substantially, according to a new report from eMarketer, which says it will increase just 3 minutes between 2016 to 2018.
