Brits lead social networking in Europe

October 11, 2007

A recent study has found that 56% of European internet users visit social networking sites, but that British browsers are the heaviest users. Almost 25 million British residents logged into bebo, Facebook and MySpace during August 2007 -- almost 20% of the total European internet audience. Brits were also found to spend more time on the sites, up to 5.8 hours per month.
