Study: Users Spend More Time on Social Networks Than Ever Before, but Twitter’s Growth Slows Down

Read/Write/Web – “According to a new study from Nielsen, Internet users spend more time on social networks and blogs in May 2009 than ever before. The total number of minutes increased 82% year-over-year.

Users also started to spend far more time on Twitter in recent months. In May 2008, the average user spent about 6 minutes on Twitter.com, while this number has now grown to more than 17 minutes (Note: as far as we can see these numbers don’t seem to take users who use third-party clients into account).”
