The research said that 95 per cent of those asked are dissatisfied with the amount of "real" time they spend with friends and family, reports the Scotsman.

Some 58 per cent prefer face-to-face above all other forms of communication. The nation's dependence on chatting online - gadget-to-gadget - is reducing the time available for socialising.

One in three (31 per cent) admit to wasting time browsing online.

Nescafe Gold Blend and The Future Laboratory conducted the research.
