Jessica Guynn reporting:

“In total, we made changes that reduced time spent on Facebook by roughly 50 million hours every day,” Zuckerberg said, in announcing the social media company’s fourth-quarter results. “By focusing on meaningful connections, our community and business will be stronger over the long term.”

Unless my math is wrong (and I don’t rule that out), given that Facebook has 1.4 billion daily active users, that’s only a reduction of 2.1 minutes per person, on average. Right? No wonder he used the larger number.

Then again, the average Facebook user spends 20 minutes on the site per day. So there is hope for humanity, is I guess the lesson.
