Top 10 categories for time spent online
My colleague Michigan Radio reporter Steve Carmody passed along this study from the Nielsen Company:
So how are we spending our time online? (hint: you "like" it). From the report:
Americans spend more time on Facebook than they do any other U.S. website.
Here's the top ten:
- 22.5 percent of our online time is spent on social networks and blogs
- 9.8 percent online games
- 7.6 percent e-mail
- 4.5 percent "portals"
- 4.4 percent videos/movies
- 4.0 percent search
- 3.3 percent instant messaging
- 3.2 percent software manufacturing
- 2.9 percent classifieds/auctions
- 2.6 percent on current events and global news
