(Newser) – Social networking websites continue to dominate an increasing portion of the time we spend online, new Nielsen data says. Users are spending 23% of their time on the Internet using sites like Facebook and MySpace, and just 8.3% on email. Only last year, the split was much more even: users spent 15.8% of their time on social sites and 11.5% on email, Technologizer reports.
