Kuliza Social Technology Quarterly Issue 08 Social Networks Women spend their time on As new social networks grow quickly, and their new member rates increase exponentially, they generate a tremendous amount of hype. Part of this is of course PR-created and part is ‘word-of-mouth’ and referrals, as more of one’s social group joins a new social network, people are compelled to join as well so as to feel involved. For all the hype these generate, how much of their time do people actually spend on social networks? While the vast majority of time is unsurprisingly spent on Facebook, people spend very little time relatively on other social networks.

It would be interesting if Pew had been able to break this down further and identify what activities in particular people spend their time on, and which activities are encouraging them to take a break from Facebook.
