How is your weekend internet use different from your weekday internet use?
I am trying to analyze internet trends and culture. It seems that web traffic varies significantly on the weekends from the regular weekdays traffic. How does the way you use the internet on the weekend differ from the way you use the internet on a weekday?
Since I work online, I am on most of the time during the week. Much of it is for work, some is for my personal interests. I take the weekends off now, so if I am online it will only be for personal projects or just talking to friends on Facebook. I am online far more during the week than on the weekends.
Thanks for your input TheInspiredLife. I have noticed less traffic on the weekends. Weekdays are more for internet usage. Weekends are busier in general, and internet usage is more limited for personal projects and keeping up with friends.
I'm online a lot more on weekdays than weekends. There is a lot more to do on the weekends unless I'm working. The only things I use the internet for on weekends are to check my hub account (everyday!) or to look up where something is.
I probably use it less on the weekend because I try to spend time with family and rest from the computer usage. I do check emails for anything important but I stay away from anything that needs a lengthy action or reply.
My house gets quieter on the weekend. My husband is home and will fix meals. Most of the kids have a habit of disappearing on the weekends I frequently get more writing accomplished on the weekend. He likes to read ;I am out of his hair and not asking him to do anything if I am writing.
I find I spend less time on the computer during the weekends than I do during the week. We are usually busy doing family stuff on the weekends. When I do use the computer on the weekend, I am much more likely to spend my time browsing and reading articles than working or writing.
I have been accustomed to traffic drops on my hubs on weekends, as have many others. However, for the past few weekends, I have noticed an increase rather than a decrease in traffic. I'm waiting to see if it happens again this weekend!

Hey, guys.My own site's still got a lot of work before it goes live, but I'm trying to figure out a few things. I'm considering the idea of adding new content daily, but only on weekdays.So far, I only have my HP views as a guide, but I'm wondering how indicative they are of web traffic...

Not sure exactly why, but nowadays my weekend traffic to Hubs does better than weekday traffic. Has anyone else seen this? Perhaps people are sitting on beaches during the weekends looking for something to read?

If you can make it to this September's San Francisco HubCamp, would you rather it be on a weekday or a weekend? We're ready to set a date, but want to pick one that's most convenient for you

Is it just me, or does everybody's traffic dip drastically at the weekends (esp Sunday)?My traffic recovers again. But the weekend dip seems like a pattern. I guess it fits with my theory that most people access the internet at work or school?

Do you experience a drop in your traffic during the weekend?
