Lonely life of the techno-addict as thousands go up to 48 hours without speaking to another human

Technology-addicts regularly go 48 hours without speaking to anyone in person, a study has found.

A significant three per cent of adults fall into a so-called ‘digitally dominant’ group which will mainly communicate via text, email or video calls.

It suggests technology – from smartphones to iPads – is helping to kill off physical and social interaction among those obsessed with the devices.
