How much time on Facebook?

Or How much time you wasted on Facebook?  Few hidden secrets (FB tricks) 

How much time did you spend on social media?

time on Facebook
                                    Some of my Facebook friends.

Time Magazine’s Techland.time brought out an article under the section  ‘Social Networking’ under the title: “How Much Time Have You Wasted on Facebook?” Read more: Facebook Time Machine:

How much time you spent on Facebook!

Indeed an interesting and curious question to know the answer!

I tried this test and got the following results:

See the below-given screenshots of my result:

It says: The average user spends 17 minutes a day on Facebook, and in the second screenshot says:

Facebook is 3656 days old.  You’ve belonged for 631 of them and posted 2327 things to feed at that time. This may be true, according to this tool, but I haven’t wasted any time instead :-)

I utilized it for posting my things like; my blog links, and other special news about my people and other Church activities, etc.  Of course, this includes my friends, relatives, colleagues,  etc.)  and their activities.

But still, I think this looks like not an accurate account of my usage, instead, I used it several times to promote my blog contents and other above mentioned related activities.  Anyways, if you are interested to know, please check out yours by visiting this page.



Please check out this post how the spamsters are using Facebook as their spamming tool!  This is indeed a serious issue which Facebook should address soon!  The promising advertisement is still roaming on the pages of the Internet. So sad to say that, even this ad appears on some famous platforms.  So Facebook users and all Online users Beware of this Ad.

  2. Hi Philip,

    Congratulations on your new blog – great going indeed! I think the migrations worked very well :)

    Coming to the post, I didn’t know that FB users are online for just 17 minutes!! I thought they were online forever! But I guess that’s an average estimate and would depend from person to person. I couldn’t find the link to the video you mentioned though.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

    Hello Philip,

    Its great to hear that you have not actually ‘wasted’ your time on FB. I, for once, have spent quite a lengthy time there. However, I have also benefited in a very big way – more than I think I have ‘lost’ or ever will lose!

    You’ve got quite an impressive blog here…what is needed is serious passion and dedication to take it to enviable heights!

    • Hello Akaahan,
      Thank you so much for your kind visit and comment to this new face.
      Yes, I agree that is true, facebook involvement will enhance our traffic to our pages, but at the same time spending much time on it is also will lose our time of other activities. Thanks again for your kind compliments and advice.
      Have a wonderful day.
      Best Regards

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any
    way you can remove people from that service? Thanks a lot!

    I mostly use Facebook to connect with the world and the most time of mine is spent here.
    I think, 17 minutes an average is really a weird estimate.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful article with us.
    Have a nice week ahead.

  12. I spend a lot of time on Facebook. I may take a day off here and there, but everyday I check it. This is important because I have groups I am an admin of. So you must put in the time to generate an active group

    A very insightful post. Undoubtedly, people spend numerous hours on facebook which can be used for productivity, but this activity has led to develop a platform for marketer to promote their brands on facebook.
