Accessing the latest news stories across the world has never been easier. From newspapers, radio, TV, online sites and social media apps available at the flick of our mobile screens, we can now update ourselves on the most recent news almost instantly, wherever it takes place in the world. With so many avenues and sites we can access, which ones are the most popular in each country and across the globe overall?

Using Alexa website rankings, we have produced a graphic identifying the most visited news site in each country, as well as the most popular sites across the globe

Msn.com is the most popular news website around the world, coming in at number one in nine countries, followed by NTD.TV which is the most popular in seven countries. The BBC, the most popular site in the UK is the most popular in four countries. The top site in the USA is Espn.com, in Australia it is news.com.au and in Canada it’s cbc.ca.

So we’ve identified the most popular news site in each country by the number of visits it gets, but how long are users actually spending on these sites?

With the average reader spending time on a news site for 15 seconds before deciding to stay on the page or not, the length users spend on the most popular news sites around the world really shows how much they value the content.

The Dominican Republic spends the most time on their most popular news website each day, viewing the site for almost 14 minutes per day, while Iran spends the least time reading the news each day at 2 minutes and 41 seconds.

Looking at the results below, is the most popular news site in your country your favourite?
