Users Now Spend More Time With Facebook Than Google
During August, Facebook fans spent 41.1 million minutes on the social networking site -- 9.9% of their monthly online time. That was slightly more than the 39. 8 million minutes users spent on Google (GOOG) sites, including YouTube and GMail, which accounted for 9.6% of their monthly Internet time, according to the report.
A year ago, Facebook users spent less than 5% of their time with the social networking site.
This is the second month in a row that Facebook's gains have pushed it past a major rival for people's online time: In July, it squeaked past Yahoo (YHOO) for the first time in total minutes.
