Notes: Social networks account for the single largest share of consumers’ time online, per the data, although it should be noted that the results are from a survey of 18-64-year-olds, and the inclusion of the 65+ group would likely dampen that figure simply by virtue of their lower adoption of social networking. Beyond social networking, Americans spend the next-largest amount of online time with email, while search and online video each account for about 1 in every 8 minutes spent online per day.
