Total US Time Spent on Facebook Up 700% in the Last Year

In a report released today by Nielsen, analysts found that Facebook is the stickiest social networking site. This is not new news, but the growth in total time spent on Facebook in the past year is kind of staggering. From April 2008 to April 2009, total minutes spent on Facebook increased from 1.7 billion minutes to 13.9 billion minutes – an annual growth rate of 700 percent. MySpace comes in second with 5 billion minutes in April 2009, roughly 2 billion minutes shy of time spent in April 2008. Blogger, Tagged, and Twitter follow next. (Twitter showed the largest percentage gain overall, up over 3700% since last year.)
