We Spend 26 Days a Year Looking at Random Websites

posted by Todd Robbins -

You probably think your salary is too low, so maybe this'll make you feel better: At least they're paying you thousands of dollars to go down daily YouTube rabbit holes.

According to a new study, the average person spends at least four hours a week looking at random websites when they're supposed to be working.

So if you multiply that out, that comes out to almost 200 hours a year . . . or 26 entire workdays.

And based on the median American salary of $45,800, that means the average person gets paid $4,500 a year to mess around on the Internet.

The study also found there are only 11% of companies left that don't do any kind of website blocking on their employees' computers.

85% of companies block porn sites . . . 61% block online dating . . . 38% block social media . . . and 13% block retail sites like Amazon.
