The Cost of All Those Snaps and Double Taps: $192 Billion

This generation lives in a basically social-first world and, sure, that carries some benefits. It’s also costing employers money. A lot of money.

A new study by the recruitment firm Ajilon found that millennial workers waste $192.4 billion worth of work each year just by checking social media during work hours.

The average millennial employee, the study says, spends 140 hours per year on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and 13 percent of millennials claim they spend an hour or more using it at work.
