22 Percent of Internet Time Is Social
Interesting article here from the New York Times describing a recent Nielsen report that reveals that Twittering, commenting, blogging, sharing and “liking” now fill up 22 percent of all time spent online each month. Nielsen published statistics on Tuesday saying that people spend one in every four and a half minutes of their online time on a social network or blog. In the aggregate, Web users spend a total of 110 billion minutes on social Web sites and blogs each month.
