Brits spend most time on social networks but email and portals survive


Brits spend more time on social networks and blogs than any other online activity, according to a new survey by the UK Online Measurement Company (UKOM).

Internet users spent 65% more time online in April 2010 (884 million hours) than they did in April 2007 (536 million hours), and the way in which this time has been allocated across different sectors has changed dramatically.

One in every four and a half UK minutes online is accounted for by social networks & blogs, with the sector having grown to account for almost 23% of UK internet time (176 million hours).
