Social media is becoming a revolutionizing and unavoidable aspect of our daily lives. Founded in 2004, "Facebook" has become one of the most popular social networking services to date. As a feature whose initial purpose was to create an online environment for Harvard students to gather on the web, Facebook now hosts approximately 1.11 billion users. Of those 1.11 billion users, approximately 665 million are active each day.

In 2012, NBC News posted an article stating that on average, a person spends 13 minutes on Facebook.

We
claim
that the average time spent on Facebook is not 13 minutes.
Through the application of statistics, we will conduct a hypothesis test to test our claim.
We believe otherwise...
HYPOTHESIS TEST
Ho: µ = 13 minutes
Ha: µ ≠ 13 minutes
Claim:
The average amount of time spent on Facebook is not 13 minutes.

In addition, the 'p' value in this situation is approximately 0.0007 which is well below the significance level of 0.01
Decision:
Reject the null hypothesis (Ho)
Conclusion:
There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the average amount of minutes spent on Facebook is not 13 minutes.
