Social Studies: How much do you know about social media?
And, according to social studies professor John Taylor of the University of Illinois, you’ll spend an average of about an hour on social media a day.
This infographic explains how much you know, as well as some of the most common social media accounts you might have never heard of.
You’ll also find out which social media platforms you’ll want to spend more time on, and which platforms you should avoid.
To get the most out of this infographic, I asked Taylor to calculate how much each social media platform pays for an hour of your time.
He did this by comparing how much a social media user would spend per day on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.
The chart below shows how much time each platform would pay for an average user to visit their favorite site for an entire day.
The infographic uses the following social media stats:1) Average users spend an hour and 30 minutes a day on each platform, including time spent on mobile sites (Facebook, Twitter) and social media sites.2) The top platforms spend more than 10% of their users time on each site.3) The bottom platforms spend less than 5% of users time.4) The average social media users spend around 8 minutes a week on each social network.5) The most popular social media websites have over 1 billion followers on each.
If you are a fan of social media, this infographic should help you learn more about what you’re actually consuming and how it affects your health.
You’ll find links to all of the social media content on this infographic at the bottom of this post.
What do you think?
I am a big fan of the infographic.
I’m sure many people would benefit from learning more about social networking sites and their social media practices.
This infographic makes a lot of sense, and gives us a sense of how much we’re spending on each of the major social media apps.
As someone who is trying to find the best way to get more exercise, it’s good to have a tool to help.
