As part of a presentation at a Wall Street Journal conference, internet business strategist Michael Wolf has combed through data from a variety of sources and uncovered some interesting statistics: mainly, that U.S. adults are spending more time with games than they have in the past, and that the trend is only going to continue.
In 2011, U.S. players 18 and up spent 44 minutes, on average, playing games a day; that number will rise to 66 minutes by 2017, Wolf's estimates suggest. The amount of time spent on video, audio, and social media content is also on the rise.
Part of the reason this is possible is because users are multitasking more these days, Wolf's data suggests; the "average American" -- or employed adult -- spends 31 hours on activities in a single 24-hour day.
