What would you do without Facebook?

ComputerWhen you consider that the 2012 Sensus revealed that facebook reaches 97% of all social media users, and on average users access Twitter 22.65 times per week, social networking is obviously becoming a huge part of the Aussie lifestyle.  So just how much time do you spend on social networking websites, and what do you do there?

When chatting with Bacchus Marsh locals, and those in our own Bacchus Marsh office, it seems there are a variety of reasons people jump online.  It may be as simple as checking an email or paying a bill, or as specific as catching up on the Twitter reaction to a current media issue or ‘checking in’ to your favourite Bacchus Marsh restaurant on Facebook.

It is fast becoming the age of the online consumer.  You can find almost anything online; you can look online for news and weather, live sports scores, live streamings of your favourite TV programs, gossip forums, and ‘how to’ videos, not to mention all the money you can spend shopping online.  And of course, we wouldn’t be a real estate agency without mentioning the browsing you can do for Bacchus Marsh rental properties and houses for sale.  In fact, ‘online browsing’ is how most people begin their search for a new home.

So we thought we’d ask you, our blog readers, Facebook ‘likers’ and Twitter followers, how much time do you spend online, and what do you do there?   Are there any websites you simply can’t live without?
