Facebook Is the Web’s Ultimate Timesink [STATS]

Some interesting stats 

The average U.S. Internet user spends more time on Facebook than on Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Microsoft, Wikipedia, and Amazon combined. Think about that for a moment.

[…]Back in June 2009, Nielsen estimated that the average U.S. user spent 4 hours and 39 minutes on Facebook per month. That’s about 9.3 minutes per day in a 30 day month. In August, that number rose to 5 hours and 46 minutes, or 11.5 minutes per day.

In January 2010 though, the amount of time the average person spent on Facebook jumped to over 7 hours. Each American Facebook user spent an average of 421 minutes on Facebook per month, which amounts to over 14 minutes per day. Even if you lump together the time spent on Google(Google) (1:23), Yahoo (2:09), YouTube(YouTube) (1:02), Microsoft/Bing(Bing) (1:35) Wikipedia(Wikipedia) (0:15), and Amazon (0:22), it still doesn’t beat Facebook.
