  |  December 2, 2003   |  Comments

comScore Media Metrix and Nielsen//NetRatings analyze who is going where on the Web, and for how long.

comScore Media Metrix reports that the total amount of time spent by Americans on the Internet increased during the month of October 2003, with the biggest gain seen among home users. While September's overall increase was driven almost entirely by the university population returning to campus and their computers, the student population was the only group to have decreased their minutes during October.
