Now singles can look at what device someone is using to decide whether they're married and if it's safe to hit on them.
The study, which took place in August, was conducted with more than 2,000 U.S. adults who were asked a series of questions about their desktop, smartphone, and tablet use. The results showed that 49 percent of single respondents owned a smartphone, while only 43 percent of married people owned one. However, 45 percent of married couples had a tablet and only 36 percent of singles owned such a device.
Here are some other interesting tidbits from the study:
- 55 percent of smartphone owners use their device to search, even when a computer is within reach
- 53 percent of Millennials are more likely to shop on the job than their older counterparts
- 78 percent of adults use a second screen, for example looking at a computer to get more information when watching TV
