Free Seminar: Online Security for Parents
“Almost constantly” is how one-fifth of Americans describe how often they go online, according to a recent Pew Research Study on Internet users. 73% of adults reported going online at least daily, and that statistic jumps to 92% for teens. The percentages for those who answered “almost constantly” were similar for both groups—21% of adults and 24% of teens, or one-fifth of Americans. That’s a lot of people spending a lot of time on the web!
E-mail and searching remain the two foremost functions online, but users also frequent social media, banking, and shopping sites.
