No matter how many times we'll hear of users attempting to rise up against Facebook due to its ongoing issues with its users' privacy, it's still a destination that is quite popular with the majority of the Internet according to a study conducted by San Francisco's Morrison & Foerster.

On average, Facebook users use the service a whopping 6.75 hours a month with around 29% of those users browsing Facebook while watching television. Other popular social media services like Tumblr and Pinterest had users averaging 1.5 hours of use per month, while Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ didn't even break the 30 minute mark, with Google+ doing the absolute worst at 3 minutes of use per month on average.

 

I guess the upside in this news is Google+ hasn't been beaten out by MySpace, whose users are probably completely oblivious to the Internet's progression past that service.
