The Internet As A Diversion And Destination: Pew Internet Study
According to a new Pew Research study, Americans are increasingly going online just for fun and to pass the time.
On any given day, 53% of all the young adults ages 18-29 go online for no particular reason except to have fun or to pass the time.
Many of them go online in purposeful ways, as well.
But the results of a survey by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project show that young adults’ use of the internet can at times be simply for the diversion it presents.
Indeed, 81% of all young adults in this age cohort report they have used the internet for this reason at least occasionally.
