On average, Vietnamese spent about 7 hours per day on the internet. Vietnamese internet users mostly used mobile phones to access the internet in 2018. Mobile internet users spent the most time on watching videos and using mobile messengers. With regards to social media, Facebook and YouTube are the most popular networks in Vietnam.

The importance of internet for online business

The internet economy in Vietnam was valued at nine billion U.S. dollars in 2018, contributing four percent to the country’s GDP. The increasing internet usage and penetration via both desktop and smartphones have several implications for the Vietnamese internet economy.
