Funny, I don't see any liberal sites on there. Or even any news sites!

Time spent per what? Day, week, month, per logon?

No idea. The graphic was a stand-alone graphic, with no accompanying article.

What is this, if not a "news site"?

As in CNN, MSNBC, etc. This is discussion/analysis/activist site. The "mainstream media" sites are one-way biased information disseminators, nothing more.

Assuming those numbers are accurate, just imagine what we can do now, in this upcoming election, and beyond.

Perhaps the tide really has changed.

About 9 hours, so I'd guess per week. I know I spend a little over an hour reading the various stories on this site daily ... if not even longer.

Small wonder why fishwraps like the Washington Compost and the LA Times want to close down this site.

I've got news for 'em: Ain't gonna happen. FreeRepublic is here to stay, whether they like it or not. So get over it.

Hey, I tried to warn them. There's a genuine Surgeon General approved warning label on the front page. FReeping can be addictive. Heh, heh.

Yes, that warning is essential and well-placed! God bless you, Jim, and your family too.

I'm sure this should be added to some bump lists, but I can't decide which ones.

Does anybody else see a link here with the story on Drudge today that ABC is offering Peter Jennings (I will omit further comment thereon) $2.5 million per year less in contract renewal talks? Such sweetness. The net is fulfilling its potential. Yeeeeehaaaaaaaaa.

Well Done Jim!
Just goes to show that the all news sites like Fox etc. don't offer enough content to keep web surfers interested.
Your overall plan to expand different forums proves, without a doubt, that surfers want more than just news and research.

Ok, I found where it is linked. On the following NYT Business/Media index page click on: Interactive Graphic: Most Wanted: Text Messaging, then: Web Sites/"Stickiest"

They're on the graphic for the least sticky web sites on the web, below even teflon.com and greasedpig.org and the webcam site for janetrenointheshower.com

Peter Jennings--$2.5 million per year less in contract renewal talks?

I'll be happy when "Prevaricator Pete" has to pay the networks to get on, and they run a "paid advertisement" on the screen with him.

Mr. Robinson -- It's hardly surprising that principled people prefer discussing things with other principled people, and, disagreements about particular issues among FReePers aside, the threads are usually worth any honest person's efforts.

This is an excellent site, in more ways than I can name just now.

Many thanks!

Time Spent per Month 11: 51: 11

Wow, it went up by three whole hours just between February and March!

Of course, these stats need to be run through the Reality Filter. It may only be "11 hours per month" on average, but that's because thousands of people log in, look around for two minutes a day and leave. That really skews the huge numbers of hardcore nuts like us that really DO spend hours per DAY on here.

Timesink, thanks for the fascinating post.

Jim, Congrats. And, I know you are not interested in the following at this time, but, just a friendly reminder -- it is precisely this "stickiness" statistic which makes advertisers foam at the mouth. In their view, your site has just been ranked the #1 most de$irable place to advertise on the web. Just a thought to file away...

If any thread is "Breaking News," this one is. No Matter. This Puppy is going to get a lot of play anyway.

Thanks for posting.

I know one thing, whether the stats are per visit, day, week or month, I do my part to keep the numbers up.

That is for overall net use, NOT just Free Republic.
