“Think about when you wake up in the morning and pick up your phone, what’s the first thing you do? Do you go to Social Media? Do you look at the news? That’s what we do. Our phones and computers are our constant companions now,” says Kristy Gillentine of Houston’s Dive West Communication. SimilarWeb recently ranked the Top Fifty Websites you hit every day. The Top Ten is led by search engines and social media, no surprise there, but certain “Adult Entertainment” (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) ranks just as high! Information/News took up 24% of the entire list. Shopping has strong numbers as well.
Gillentine also pointed out that non-search engine-specific sites provide lot of searching as well. She comments, “So right up top you have a SEARCH engine, Google, followed by Facebook, which is used for SEARCH, followed by YouTube, which is used for SEARCH and another SEARCH engine, Yahoo!.”
The latest categorical statistics, Gillentine says, claim 67% of you get some of your DAILY news from Social Media.
