Where do Nigerians enjoy spending their time online?


Recent years have seen technology become increasingly important in Nigeria, and more central to how people live in this country. While this can be seen in a number of ways across our working and personal lives, the internet is undoubtedly the most important digital development that underpins everything else.


This now sees most Nigerians spending time online each day and using the internet to have fun when free. But where do people in the country head to when they goon line?


Sports betting sites


Anyone who lives in Nigeria knows how popular sport is in the country. As well as watching games, people in this part of Africa also like to bet on them. Although it is the appeal of sports betting itself that explains why Nigerians like to spend their time online enjoying this activity, the range of safe sportsbooks in the country also helps. These sports betting platforms are also easy to use and simple to navigate. Looking at how to deposit on BetKing, for example, shows just what a breeze it is putting funds into your account.


Social media platforms


As in most other parts of the world, people in Nigeria flock to social media platforms when heading online. Nigerians spend, on average, more than three hours every day using these sites, leading the way as one of the top countries in Africa for social media usage. In terms of platforms that are most popular, top brands such as YouTube and Facebook appear to be the go-to choices.


But why is this such a popular online activity in Nigeria? To begin with, social media sites make it simple to stay updated with the latest national, local or world news and events, as they happen. In addition, they offer a convenient way to catch up with old friends, keep up with the latest celeb gossip (such as singer Tems recent Grammy Award win) and make new friends.


Online shops


E-commerce is huge in Nigeria and it is estimated that the online shopping market in the country was worth $7.6bn in 2021. This shows not only how big online shopping is in Nigeria but also how many Nigerians love to spend their time online at e-commerce stores. Jumia is a good example of a top online shopping platform people use in the country, as are Konga and PayPorte.


The reason so many people in Nigeria spend time at e-commerce shops mainly comes down to convenience. After all, shopping online means you can get the items you need but without leaving the house or spending hours trawling around local shops for them. Online shopping also enables you to access a much wider range of goods and offers, and shop on a national or even global scale.

The digital age has been a positive development in terms of entertainment and staying busy. Although there are lots of cool things to do online, the examples here show just where Nigerians like to head when connecting to the internet.
