But other American browsing habits just might.  The following infographic is a compilation of data collected from Nielsen, Alexa, and other websites that provide reliable Internet usage information, to a paint a picture of how and where Americans spend their time online.

You don’t need much more information or proof that Social Media is running our lives. Why are some businesses not partaking?

Wow, I would have thought that google carried more weight. Either way, these numbers are no big surprise. Social networking is the thing to do now, and I doubt it is going anywhere. It is just going to become more main stream and easier for people to access, it’s here to stay people.

It amazes me how social networking can dominate someones life like it does. I know people I work with literally spend all day checking theirs and others facebook updates. It seems so unecessary. I wonder how much productivity has been lost in the workplace since online social networking?

As always, most of the people not just Americans spend much of their time to social networking sites like facebook, or visit some entertaining sites where they would see their favorite videos. Some would love to see the latest phones in amazon and other related sites as well as view the modern designer prom gowns collection.
