Facebook time – lost or not?

How-to-get-more-likes-on-Facebook-Infographic-2Do you ever wonder how much time you spend on Facebook and the other social media networks?  Do you consider it time lost or well spent?

There are so many networks and emails calling out for our attention every time we open our laptops, start our computers, or lift our smart phones, so many ways for us to get distracted that it’s easy to lose focus.  So with all this in mind we set out about trying to find out what is the average amount of time that most people (like us!!) spend on FB each month……and in our quest for answers we came across another great post from the very

informative  Jeff Bullas, whose blog we love and follow almost religiously!! Jeff had these updated statistics about what is happening, where it’s happening and how long we’re spending making it happen on social media:

20 Social Media Statistics

These figures reveal the huge black hole that our time disappears into when we visit Facebook, Twitter or YouTube or other social media sites.

  1. One in every nine people on Earth is on Facebook ( This number is calculated by dividing the planets 6.94 billion people by Facebook’s 750 million users)
  2. People spend 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook
  3. Each Facebook user spends on average 15 hours and 33 minutes a month on the site
  4. More than 250 million people access Facebook through their mobile devices
  5. More than 2.5 million websites have integrated with Facebook
  6. 30 billion pieces of content is shared on Facebook each month
  7. 300,000 users helped translate Facebook into 70 languages
  8. People on Facebook install 20 million “Apps” every day
  9. YouTube has 490 million unique users who visit every month (as of February 2011)
  10. YouTube generates 92 billion page views per month (These YouTube stats don’t include videos viewed on phones and embedded in websites)
  11. Users on YouTube spend a total of 2.9 billion hours per month (326,294 years)
  12. Wikipedia hosts 17 million articles
  13. Wikipedia authors total over 91,000 contributors
  14. People upload 3,000 images to Flickr (the photo sharing social media site) every minute
  15. Flickr hosts over 5 billion images
  16. 190 million average  Tweets per day occur on Twitter (May 2011)
  17. Twitter is handling 1.6 billion queries per day
  18. Twitter is adding nearly 500,000 users a day
  19. Google+ has more than 25 million users
  20. Google+ was the fastest social network to reach 10 million users at 16 days (Twitter took 780 days and Facebook 852 days)

So after having read through all those statistics, do you agree that you spend an average of 15 hours a month on Facebook?  We would say that we are definitely outside the average in that statistic, probably more like 15 hours a day on all the social networks, monitoring, posting, scheduling and doing all the other things that SocialClix.Biz does being the amazing digital agency that it is 🙂
