What is the most frequently occuring attack vector of cold viruses?

Do most people get infected by the common cold when touching the nose, when touching the eyes, or breathing in droplets?

It is known that most people contract a cold virus by those three pathways/vectors (also, touching the mouth or the ears). However, which of them is the most commonly occurring one in the population? Has research been done on this? I'm asking about the single most commonly occurring one in society, not the one that has the highest susceptibility per occurrence.
