The life of today’s people is generally dependent on the internet, we humans are becoming addicted to mobile phones in most aspect of life, whenever we decide to go anywhere, or are not in the mood to go outside for doing groceries, and when we have to pay our utility bills and even after some busy time, all of us want some “ME Time” so for the relaxation of mind, we people are used to watch movies at Netflix or pass some time on social media apps. Although the pandemic played a big role in all this addiction game. But as a result of this addiction, most people among us are suffering from sleep deprivation.

The sleep expert from SleepJunkie, Dorothy Chambers said, in 2020, around 78% of adults were battling with the revenge sleep depuration and its numbers are increasing since the last year.

A few weeks back, SleepJunkie has conducted a survey among 2,000+ adults. The survey conducted around two things, first, which app is more harmful to the people in terms of going into the sleep phase and the second phase of the survey about their sleep quality means REM phase of the sleep.

REM phase of sleep is the lightest phase of a person's sleep, among the several hours of sleep duration, in the REM phase a person can wake up very easily.

And if bring the social media into the mix, TikTok has won the race for being the terrible app for sleep, as it's named as the top most disruptive app for good night sleepers. Instagram is in the second position. But the difference is minor among those two apps. TikTok users take 1 hour and 7 minutes to fall asleep and Instagram users take 58 minutes to sleep.

But for the REM phase of sleep, Instagram users spent around 15.5% of their sleep in the REM phase while the TikTok user percentage for the REM phase is around 14. Here is Instagram winning the crown in the second part of the survey, although it is not a good crown to wear.
