On Weibo I saw the infographic below, posted 2 weeks ago on the Socially Aware Blog. There are a couple of interesting statistics on there, but 2 of them really blew me away.
The first one is a comparison between Facebook and Google+. The average American visitor spends 6.75 hours per month on Facebook, which seems reasonable to me. But if you look at Google+, there the time spent is only 3 minutes! Google+ may have a lot of users, but most are users by default because of their Google profile and never seem to use it.
The other one is about how much time Americans spend on online video sites. YouTube is the winner with 3 hours per month (a lot less than I had expected), but number 2 is… Tudou! U.S. customers spend an average of 2.5 hours on Tudou per month, the same time as on Hulu.
Of course this is only the average time that people who visit Tudou (in the US obviously a much small number than YouTube visitors) spend on the site, but it’s still a lot of time considering the fact that Tudou is hosted in China and is therefore relatively slow. And of course now I’m wondering how Tudou ended up on this list at all…
