Facebook Users Spending 7 Hours A Month On Site

A recent Nielson Company survey of web users found that Facebook users spend an average of seven hours a month updating statuses, sending messages, creating events, playing games, and just generally using the social network. The time spent on Facebook far surpassed the average time spent on any other site examined in the survey.

Facebook saw 116,329,000 unique users visit its site in the month of January, with a 5.80% month-over-month increase over December. Compare this to Google, the web brand with the most unique users in January, and it’s clear that Facebook is growing – Google’s 162,136,000 unique users in January only grew by 4.10% over December.
