We've established that the WWW is humongous place to explore and be lost in. In late 2009, The Harris Interactive poll found that 80 percent of U.S. adults go online, whether at home, work, or elsewhere. Those who surf the Net spend an average of 13 hours per week online, but that figure varies widely. 20% are online for two hours or less a week, while 14% are there for 24 hours or more. The age group that spent the most time online per week: 30- to 39-year-olds, at 18 hours. 13 hours is almost double that of 7 hours from 1999 through 2002.

Due to the nature of my work, I spend a lot of time in front of either my laptop or computer. Giving some thought to the hours, I spend a minimum of 7 hours to a maximum of 35 hours a week of my leisure time on the Internet in a regular week (inclusive of email but excluding computer related work I do such as photo or video editing). Bearing that in mind, I do NOT spend a lot of time in social sites and online gaming. And already I am exceeding the average monthly hours of an American in my time spent online on a leisure basis alone!

If I have (on an average) 45 leisure hours in a week or 180 hours in a month... I could spend up to 140 of those hours online monthly! INSANE!!! That is a scary amount of time to spend in a virtual space. That being said, I constantly have to remind myself in keeping to my ideal average time spent, which is suppose to be 1/2 that amount of time. created an Internet Usage Infographic based on Nielsen data. The infographic explains how the world spends time on the Internet. Here are some of the highlights:

- 22% of the time is spent on Social Networks
- 36% of the time is spent on Email / Search
- 42% of the time is spent viewing content
- On average a users looks at over 2600 web pages and 89 domains per month
- Americans spend an average of 60 hours on the Internet each month
