(CNN) -

Social media appears to be taking over even the most private room in the house.

This is from a Nielsen study.

It found 32 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds use social networking while in the bathroom.

That could be updating a Facebook status or sending a tweet.

The study also found we're spending more time on social media compared to last year.

Increasingly, that time is spent using smartphones.
