[Buzzword] How Many Things Can You Do At Once?

Hey guys! To begin with, let me ask you a question: are you reading this article on your smartphone with the TV on?


Maybe you’re not even concentrating enough to read this sentence, but are currently enjoying your favorite TV drama whilst seeing the word [Buzzword] appear from the corner of your eye.

If so, then you’re definitely not alone, as it seems we’re increasingly occupying our time with a spot of electronic multi-tasking, now known as stacking.

The activity of using a device such as a smartphone, tablet, etc. to do something unrelated (e.g. browsing the Internet) whilst watching TV.

The word stacking as a reference to use of multiple electronic devices first appeared in 2013 in the context of a research undertaken by Ofcom in the UK, which suggested that 6 in 10 adults now engage in the practice. Also sometimes known as media stacking or screen stacking, the usage quickly gained currency both in the US and Australia amidst a flurry of commentary on how hand-held devices appeared to be creating a propensity towards media multi-tasking.

Example sentence:

– Could you please stop stacking and just watch the TV together with me?
