The Virus changed the way we Internet

  • 1 month ago

A New York Times analysis of internet usage in the United States from SimilarWeb and Apptopia, two online data providers, reveals that the behaviors shifted, sometimes starkly, as the virus spread and pushed people to the devices for work, play and connecting.

  • Facebook, Netflix and YouTube have all seen user numbers on their phone apps stagnate or fall off, as their websites have grown.
  • As people want to see one another - its has given a big boost to apps that used to linger in relative obscurity, like Google’s video chatting application, Duo, and Houseparty; and led to a renewed interest in Nextdoor, the social media site focused on connecting local neighborhoods.
  • As the offices and schools of America have all moved into the basements and living rooms - meetings are happening on Zoom, Google Hangouts and Microsoft Teams.
  • Amid the uncertainty about how bad the outbreak could get, Americans appear to want few things more than the latest news; and the biggest beneficiaries from the situation are local news sites, with huge jumps in traffic as people try to learn how the pandemic is affecting their hometowns.
  • With all major-league games called off, the use of ESPN’s website has fallen sharply since late January; at the same time, several video game sites have had surges in traffic, as have sites that let you watch other people play.
