The latest data from research company Nielsen indicates that Americans now devote a full 6 hours a month to social networking, up 16% from a year ago.

And what network do they spend their time on? You guessed it! Facebook claims an 85% share while MySpace comes in a way distant second with only 5%, and Twitter only 1%.

So if most time was spent on social networks, what else captures our attention? Online games account for 10% of time spent, while email came in at 8%. Watching video is now a full 4% of all time spent online, which amounts to an average of 3 hours and 15 minutes a month.
