Um, the internet is supposed to be fun, right? And hey if I'm online, I'm not out robbing a store or anything like that. So it's all good :-]
LOL..I'm in that age range, and I got on the net to check my e-mail. And 1 hour later still on just looking at random stuff and checking hardware pages. I pretty much spend at least 1 hour a day on the internet for no particular reason. It's better than TV.
I don't know about you all but I don't think visiting Hot Hardware for my daily fix of tech news and reviews is a waste of time.
They clearly are not speaking to me on this matter.
I usually have a purpose when I first go online, but always find myself sidetracked for a couple hours before I go offline again.
Well I'm one of the people who use the internet mainly for fun (also some discussion.). Granted, the internet does have some useful purposes but I always seem to get sidetracked by the having fun part...
Wait why was I on here again. Oh yeah I am not a young adult so it does not matter. Booyaa!
Not surprising... Most young adults just get online and start browsing youtube or facebook for random stuff.
Erm i go online just for HH 😛 lol. But meh i do have things to take care of daily so i say there is a reason for me. But most of the day i say i'm just bored... :P
Very rarely do I ever get on the internet, or even on my computer whatsoever, without purpose. I do my absolute best to use my time wisely. Sometimes, such as when I'm getting sick, it doesn't work that way, and I do so out of boredom. That doesn't happen often either, but it does happen. Of well over 95% of my time spent online, I'm on here with a specific purpose.
I would say about 99% of people go on the net for no real reason other then its something to do/pass the time. Sure people might go to check their email but how many just check their email then get off?
so having fun = having no reason for going online? oook...
I'm one for going online for a purpose! Always have been & always will be![H]
In the age of data analytics of actual usage activity, how is this even a valid method?
