In a week people spend:
32.7 hours surfing the Web
16.4 hours watching TV
3.9 hours reading newspapers and magazines

The number of US women over age 55 using Facebook grew by 175.3% since September 2008, making mature females one of the fastest growing demographic groups on the social network, according to usage statistics released by independent blog Inside Facebook.
