Re: Morning Ritual
Ha. I am part of the majority. My first ten reaches to my phone are predominantely snoozing the alarm, followed by checking the weather, any urgent emails, and turning on some music to crawl out of bed to. However, if I was expecting some important money transfer I think I'd work that in, too. Facebook is too much to handle first thing in the morning - my respect for those who have enough brain power to scroll and digest all the newsfeed information.

Re: Morning Ritual
Yes, I agree, I think that's most people's rituals these days. If not checking Facebook, at least looking at work email.

Re: Morning Ritual
I'm not a millennial, but my phone is my alarm clock too. So that is the first thing i reach for too. Do i immediately check email on it, or Facebook? Not all the time. But I do scan the email previews (alerts) that pop up on the home screen to see if anything urgent arrived overnight.

Re: Morning Ritual
I think the findings are pretty accurate. Phones are much more than just phones nowadays, obviously. Email, social apps, web browsing, news apps, alarm clocks. So 80% reach for their phone first thing in the morning...that sounds about right.

Re: Morning Ritual
To me , it actually didn't seem unreasonable at all that most younger people roll out of bed and immediately check Facebook/twitter, maybe not so much people who are 30, but defintiely those in the 18-22 range. That's kind of the culture we live in now.

Re: Morning Ritual
I was thinking the same thing - if 80% of millennials are waking up and immediately checking their email or social media, that's kind of concerning. This is all valuable insight on the banking customers of the future. Banks should take note and boost their mobile/imaging capabilities.

Morning Ritual
I am going to assume that the reason people reach for their smartphone first thing in the morning though is because they use it as their alarm clock, like I do. I don't think people are rolling out of bed reaching for their smartphone to post on Facebook or check their mobile banking. If that is the case than that kind of worries me.
