Web Content Usage Up 37% Since 2003

According to a recently released study conducted by Nielsen/NetRatings, people are spending about half their online time consuming and interacting with content. This is up 37% since 2003.

According to the the study, three key reasons are: the ubiquity of broadband access, the emergence of social meda sites such as youtube and myspace and the improvement in search technology which more frequently serves up the content that users are looking for.
