by Brian Giesen

Some interesting nuggets in the August 2010 Australian Online Landscape Review from Nielsen:

Internet Use: 14.84 million Australians used the Internet in the past month

Stickiest Site: Facebook is responsible for 90% of all time spent on social media sites in Australia

Social: Over 70% of Australian Internet users visited a social media site in the past month

Peak Times: 5PM & Mondays are the heaviest times of the week for Internet use

Mobile Web: Mobile Web usage jumped in the past month – more than 250K Australians accessed the Web through a mobile device

Good to see we remain the most Facebook-addicted country in the world!

Great stats, thanks Brian!

Nice to see a stat on Aussie Twitter usage which I hadn’t seen before.

14.84M Aussies on the Internet, 1.42M used Twitter¦ If I’m reading this right then 9.5% of Australian Internet users use Twitter

I believe it would be higher than that due to those accessing twitter through Smartphone/iPad apps. the above stat refers to UVs only, so actual user number might be 30%(?) higher
