What percentage of Americans who use cell phones admit they've faked calls to avoid interacting with people around them?
A survey of more than 2,300 Americans from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project revealed this social phenomenon.
What age group is faking calls most often? Thirty percent of surveyed 18- to 29-year-olds fessed up to pretending.
Each successive age group fakes it less frequently: 11 percent of those age 30 to 49, 6 percent of 50- to 64-year-olds, and 2 percent of those 65 years and over.
