(ANSA) - MILAN, SEPTEMBER 24 - A study by researchers from DeMontfort University Leicester reveals that ten-year-olds lose about one night's sleep a week by staying awake to use social media.

The research, led by psychology professor Dr. John Shaw, suggests that 12.5% ​​of children aged 10 and over wake up voluntarily to check their cell phone notifications.

For his study, Shaw analyzed the behavior of 60 pre-teens, from different schools and cities in the UK.

The group slept an average of 8.7 hours each night, less than the 9-12 hours recommended for that age group by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Most admitted using social media for "more than four hours a day",

with two-thirds claiming to use them right before bedtime.

"The fear of being pushed out, which is amplified by social media, is directly affecting the sleep of the little ones, who want to know what their friends are doing - explained Dr. John Shaw during a speech at the British Science Festival - If not online when something is happening. , it means they're not taking part in that thing. You fall into a loop: who is anxious even more on social media, which makes them more anxious yet, negatively impacting their sleep. "

TikTok has the highest involvement in children surveyed, with 90% reporting using the app at night.

Snapchat is in second place with 84%, while just over half have used Instagram.
