Go­ing online (to pass time)

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

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
