The pan-Hellenic Focus on Tech Life Survey by Focus Bari shows the 92% increase in the digital engagement of Greeks between the ages of 16-74.

The conditions we are experiencing due to the pandemic and the lockdown bring a new way of life with the turn of people to digital media. Everything from home work to shopping, entertainment and communication is now done digitally.

Most users are also found on social networks throughout the lockdown as well as with the increase of social groups and movements such as the recent Greek #metoo. Users are now commenting more, interacting and using a variety of social networks.

Facebook seems to be the first of the media they use and reaches 75% as 5 out of 6 Greeks now maintain a profile. They are followed by YouTube with 62% and Instagram with 55%.

According to the research, the reasons that Greeks use the internet are to communicate with friends and acquaintances and not to feel cut off from the outside world, to be able to promote their work and offer their services.

Many times, however, there are negative effects on the use of social networks such as the use of obscene content, either visual or linguistic. There are many cases of harassment found on the internet as well as the theft of data from supposed emails of large companies.

Nevertheless, the research results in the correct information and proper use of social networks.
