Food sector gains as online hours soar
25 May, 2010
Britons now spend two thirds more time online than they did three years ago, according to new research from the UK Online Measurement Company – and food-based websites are among the biggest gainers.
The average time spent online each month is now 22 hours and 15 minutes, up by 65% from 2007. The time spent on social networking or blogging websites like Facebook and Twitter has nearly trebled during the last three years, and now accounts for around 13 minutes in every hour online.
