How Do People Spend Their Time Online? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that social networking is now the most popular online activity, with users spending more than one fifth (22 percent) of their time engaging on channels such as Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest?

When you consider that the global online population now exceeds two billion, and that the average U.S. internet user spends 32 hours online each and every month, that’s a lot of time devoted to tweets, Likes and pins.

Indeed, more than 250 million tweets and 800 million Facebook status updates are now made every single day. And it’s not always for a good cause – 56 percent of social networking users have admitted to using these platforms to spy on their partners.

This infographic takes a closer look at how people spend their time online.
