Collective global attention span is narrowing

Apr 18, 2019 12:18 IST

Researchers from the Technical University of Denmark reveal that due to the amount of information presented to the public, the 'collective' global attention span is narrowing. While people have more things to focus on, they focus on it for shorter periods of time.Several modes of media attention over the years were studied including Twitter, Google trends, movie ticket sales and more. Increasing availability of content exhausts our attention span and the urge for newness forces us to shift more quickly.
