A new study has revealed that internet users in September spent more time at Microsoft websites than at any other online properties.
Industry tracker conScore released a study which found that 1.2 billion internet users aged 15 older spent a total of nearly 27 billion hours online in September, and Microsoft websites accounted for 14.5 percent of the minutes spent online worldwide in September.
ComScore reported that the results reveal Microsoft is “the most enegaging global property.”
Nearly 70 percent of the time spent at Microsoft websites was at the US software giant’s Windows Live Messenger service; while website popularity varied by region, with Microsoft properties finishing in top spots in Europe, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, comScore reported.
Google websites were ranked second overall, accounting for 9.3 percent of people’s internet time, followed by Yahoo! and Facebook with 6.3 and 5.1 percent respectively.
