The average attention span

     It is said that a human can accurately process information rapidly and retain attention on something for approximately 5 minutes.  The problem is that most times we are caught doing things far too quickly in modern times.  People on average spend around 1 minute or less while actively browsing websites. What are some impact examples of this? It could lead to ad companies making bigger and more intrusive ads to grab the readers attention.  The point of this blog though however is to provide short hand insight on everyday things, in order for people  to gain another perspective on how they interact with the world around them daily.  I'm sure it also took you a lot less than five minutes to read this blog post, so hopefully you will stick around and spend some time reading and learning!
