Americans Spend and Socialize on Wireless Web

Shopping and networking sites get the lion's share of mobile minutes. But Craigslist?

A surprise to me: The shopping and selling site craigslist grabs the most attention of Americans browsing with their cellphones, according to market analysts at M:Metrics.

Overall, we're spending much more time on handset browsing. In a year, U.S. consumers nearly doubled (up 89 percent) the time spent browsing with their wireless phones. Facebook and MySpace were the third- and fourth-most-popular sites for mobile browsing.

The second most-popular site behind craigslist for always-shopping Americans? Well, eBay, of course.
