How I Consume Content Online

What this includes: a total of all the webpages I viewed last week and their sources. What it does not include: anything to do with shopping or banking, or the webcomics I read (although it does include blogs). It also doesn't, for the sake of sanity, include everything I read on Facebook and Twitter that did not require me to leave the page. For posted videos I would click through and include the YouTube (or other) link, but photos and other types of posts are not represented here.

In terms of links I follow, about 64% of them are from Twitter, more than twice what I click on from Facebook (28%), and far more than other/secondary links (8%). A fair amount of what I look at online, though, isn't from clicking on a link, but blogs and other things I already follow. This accounts for 33% of the total, while links I click through is 77%.

In terms of type of information, I separated links into four categories - Blog, Entertainment, News, and Other. Obviously there is in some ways overlap between these, but for these purposes I only classified things as entertainment if they were NOT blogs, while news was decided on the basis of content - whether it was more factual information or primarily opinion. Blogs are my primary source of information online, with 47% of the links. (Note - with blogs that I follow daily, I counted each post I read as a separate link, not the blog as a whole.) Entertainment and news are very close to each other, with 22% and 25%, respectively.

Clearly, Twitter drives most of my traffic, far more than Facebook. This both has to do with how I use these services, and also the direction of the information flow. On Twitter, I have curated a feed of people who will post relevant links and information I know I am interested in, and obviously this is working! Facebook, because it is more about connecting with people I know in real life than about finding content, has a much lower volume of links. However, Facebook is the first place I go to share things. Possibly it would have been relevant to include a list of all links/posts I made on these services - I suspect the Facebook/Twitter ratio would then be reversed, clearly showing the flow of information doing this: Twitter/Internet => Me => Facebook.


The complete list of links, as well as tables, is after the break.
