Holiday shopping poll results revealed!

| December 14, 2011 | Network Monitoring

WhatsUp Gold’s most recent survey of some of its 100,000 customers asked how long employees are spending shopping online leading up to the holidays. Shopping online is becoming the de facto route of choice for many during the festive season – comScore, a leader in measuring the digital world, earlier reported that holiday season spending thus far has topped $15 billion in the US alone, marking a 15% increase over last year.

Full results to the question “How long do your employees spend shopping online for the holidays?” were:

  • 0 – 30 minutes per day – 13.4%
  • 30 minutes – 1 hour per day – 15.7%
  • 1 – 2 hours per day – 15.0%
  • Over 2 hours per day – 15.7%
  • I don’t know – 28.3%
  • Our web policies restrict this – 11.8%
