Internet users in Israel spend more time on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter than anywhere else in the world, Social Times reports.
Israelis spent an average of about 11 hours a month surfing social networking sites on the Internet, becoming the top ranking country in April.
The survey performed by comScore averages all Internet subscribers in Israel and does not highlight those users who are more active on specific social networking sites. The results include a variety of sites, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. With that reported, we can assume that the figure is much higher than the information reported.
Other countries that follow Israel in highest number of hours are Russia, with 10.3 hours of social networking per visitor per month, next is Argentina, Philippines and Turkey with 8.4, 7.9 and 7.8 hours respectively. Consistent with comScore, April results in the TIM survey reported weekly exposure of Facebook use in Israel grew 5.1%, bringing it up to 73% (second after Google’s 89%.)
