Going online (to pass time)
NEW YORK: A new study confirms that many Americans – and the majority of young adults – go online for no reason at all.
A total of 53 percent of 18 to 29-year-olds go online just to have fun. In all, 58 percent of all adults said they used the internet to pass the time or have fun, and nearly three- quarters surfed the web for no reason.
The survey didn’t define “fun”, so people could interpret it broadly. For some gossip blogs might be fun, for others they’re serious research. – Sapa-ap
