HOW LONG IT TAKES TO READ THE ‘TERMS OF SERVICE’ AGREEMENTS OF ONLINE SERVICES

I know nobody reads them (even though we all SHOULD), but just how long are the ‘Terms of Service Agreements” online services make us sign off on?
And how long would it take us to read them… if we did?

HERE’S THE ANSWER:
☞ Instagram: 9 minutes, 42 seconds (2451 words)
☞ Netflix: 11:00 (2628 words)
☞ Facebook: 17:12 (4132 words)
☞ Twitter: 23:30 (5633 words)
☞ Uber: 23:36 (5658 words)
☞ Tinder: 25:54 (6215 words)
☞ Zoom: 30:12 (7243 words
☞ TikTok: 31:24 (7459 words)
☞ Spotify: 35:48 (8600 words)
☞ Microsoft: 1:03:30 (15260 words)

What?
For reference, Shakespeare’s “MacBeth” is 17121 words, and would take 1:11:18 to read.
(only 8 minutes more than the Microsoft User Agreement)
