Shocking charts reveal you're spending WAY more time on Facebook than you think

Do you ever think about how much time you spend on Facebook? Yeah, we all do.

You're there chatting with a friend, and all of a sudden a few hours have blown by. You're there in the morning, checking to see what's going on in the world, and what your friends are up to.

You spend so much time on Facebook, just like most of its 1.6 billion members, that you almost feel sorry for competing social media sites. You should. By comparison, popular sites like Twitter and LinkedIn are seriously underloved.

In fact, check out these charts that show just how much time we all spend on Facebook, compared to other sites. The first chart shows that more than 90% of adults 35 or older use Facebook for more than 900 minutes, on average, every month.

The nearest competitor? LinkedIn is used by almost 50% of adults 35 or older, but for just a few minutes per month.

The second chart shows Facebook's dominance among adults 18-34. While they use many different social media sites a lot, almost 100% use Facebook. And, get this, they spend more than 1,000 minutes every month on it. Its nearest competitor is Facebook-owned Instagram, but it's used by just over 60% of 18-34s for less than 400 minutes each month.

Note: You'll soon be spending more time on Facebook than ever before. That's because Facebook has been adding features that'll keep you there longer, including live TV shows, shopping features and a lot more.
