Pornhub Traffic Affected by Missile Alert

Residents of Hawaii will never forget the bogus nuclear missile warning they got last Saturday that sent them all into a panic. Everyone had to quickly decide what they wanted to do in the few minutes they had left to live. One metric that can be used to track behavior is web traffic. Pornhub, the huge pornography sharing site, released its traffic statistics for Hawaii last Saturday (link goes to Twitter). You can see from the graph that when the alert went out at 8:07 AM, traffic at the site plunged 77% below normal for that time of day. The correction went out at 8:45, and traffic began climbing again -to even higher levels than normal! Folks were making up for lost time, it seems. You have to wonder about the 23% of users who stayed online with the site even during the alert. My guess is that they weren't paying attention to anything else. -via Boing Boing
