Breaking down how much the average user of each social or tech platform among the respondent group spent on a given activity, email still took the greatest amount of time per week, at 7.8 hours. But that was followed closely by Facebook, which occupied an average 6.8 hours per week of users’ time, while YouTube took 5 hours. And interestingly, Google+ users spent just slightly more time on average on the site (4.3 hours) than Twitter users (4.2 hours). This indicates that Google+ may be proving sticky among those who regularly use the site, even as overall usage is still much higher on Twitter. But as social channels proliferate and time spent on those platforms rises, even the most digitally connected consumers are beginning to fatigue. Fifty-four percent of respondents said they had walked away from technology at least occasionally last year to gain time in-person, and a greater percentage—62%—said they planned to reduce their tech socializing time next year and instead focus on face-to-face interaction. Even as web users report a desire to disconnect, and discussion circulates about Facebook users decreasing time spent, it remains to be seen whether social users will follow through on that promise to log off, or perhaps simply translate their time spent on social to the sites that best suit their communication needs.
