may have the answer. The most time spent in the U.S. on a 'mainstream' app is the 899 minutes per month of the average Facebook
The social network who's users invest the most time though is a networking app for gay, bi, and curious men - Grindr
. WIth a huge 1,040 minutes on average, that's over 17 hours every month. In third place, Growlr is also a networking/dating app for homosexual men. The average user here spends 665 minutes per month. In eighth, Twitter's struggles are again highlighted, with only 176 minutes in Q3 2017.
