Study: Family Time Drops as Internet Use Rises

Ad Feedback

A new survey says family time goes down, as internet use goes up.
The University of Southern California reports 28 percent of Americans say they spend less time with family members in their house.

That is nearly triple the eleven percent who said that just three years ago.
However, these same people did not report spending less time with their friends.
Research shows that may be due to the increasing popularity of social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Myspace.
Facebook alone has seen its membership double in less than a year to 200 million active users.
