These 10 US States Are the Least Obsessed with Social Media

Earning money online and even growing your brick-and-mortar business has been made easier through the recent social media explosion.

But social media can be utilized without slipping into the darker, desperate need to constantly check in on your phone. A recent study discovered which parts of the US are most and least obsessed with social media.


With around 625,500 average monthly searches for social media platforms, the study found that Hawaii was the least social media-obsessed state.

Alaska comes in at second place on the list, with monthly searches of 585.54 per 1,000 people. With about half the population of Hawaii, Alaska had over 100 more searches per 1,000 people.



Thanks to just 596.16 searches for every 1,000 people, Louisiana sits in third place. However, the state also generates more than 2,778,100 overall social media searches monthly.

Nevada ranks fourth, with 601.64 social media searches per 1,000 people and 1,825,600 overall searches each month.


Even with 1,816,300 searches overall monthly, the southern state of Arkansas comes in fifth place, with 602.66 social media searches for every 1,000 people.


Interestingly, many states now have social media password protection laws, which prevent employers from requiring employees to disclose their user names, passwords, or other information about their social media accounts.
