Facebook

The average U.S. user spent an average of 2 hours and 42 minutes per day on mobile devices in the first three months of this year, according to new data from Flurry, an app analytics service. Facebook and Instagram, which it acquired in 2012, accounted for 17% of that time.

YouTube

Visits from YouTube, Google+, and LinkedIn are just the greatest: the highest quality web traffic you can get according to a recent study. But is it the same in Sweden?
