Research say that the average attention span is down from 12 seconds in the year 2000 to 8 seconds now.๐Ÿ‘€ Which is 1 second less than a ๐Ÿ GOLDFISH.

Attention span is the amount of concentrated time a person can spend on a task without becoming DISTRACTED.

Other research studies say the reading time for an email is 11 seconds. In any form I want to keep your attention, creating a close space with actionable inputs.
