Facebook is #1

Margaret Feinberg recently pointed out that Nielsen just came out with a new social media report showing almost 1/4th of Americans’ time on the internet is spent on blogs and social media. Winning by a landslide, Facebook is the leading social website in the US.*

More minutes were spent on Facebook, both at work and at home, than 75 times the second leading social network, Blogger:

Facebook- 53,457,258 minutes

Blogger- 723,793

Tumblr- 623,525

Twitter- 565,156

LinkedIn- 325,679

In terms of Web brands, Facebook had 3 times the minutes spent on it than leading #2 brand, Yahoo.

Facebook- 53.5 billion minutes

Yahoo- 17.2

Google- 12.5

    And how has the direct correlation between facebook time and the decline of productivity in the workplace been measured. ;-P

  • Thank you for these numbers! I am speaking at a Blogging Conference in 2 weeks (http://therelevantconference.com/speakers-for-2011/) and one of the panels I’m on is titled “Social Media Ninja’s” lol!

    I plan to use these statistics to help the other bloggers know where to put their time.

    Some Christians need to stay off Facebook. Every day its…Hello everyone…I’m still in the Kristian Klub. Here is my scripture, here is my quote. Here is my link to my favorite preacher. Here is my link to a Kristian song.

    If they were honest, most of them would admit that they are doing it for themselves. It’s really sickening. Facebook is the new Kristian bumper sticker and t-shirt.
