"The second quarter of 2011 saw a continuation of this year's solid double-digit growth trends in online spending well ahead of the rate of growth in consumers' overall spending," said ComScore chairman Gian Fulgone. "As a result, it's clear that consumers are continuing to shift to the online channel, with almost $1 in every $10 of discretionary spending now occurring online."
