Being 29, I spend most of my time online social mediaing (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare) and browsing retailers like Bloomingdale’s and Etsy–which apparently makes me normal since the average woman makes 32 online purchases per year. My mom (I won’t reveal her age), on the other hand, uses the Internet mostly for Facebook (but we got her off Farmville, thank God) and researching things like “how to fix a dropped knit stitch” on YouTube. She’s certainly normal with the Facebook checking–the article says 34 percent of women check it first thing in the morning before even brushing their teeth! The article also revealed that 62 percent of women check out their exes online and more than one third peek at porn!
The numbers defining what we do online are definitely staggering. The Huffington Post states here that This article says a whopping 70 percent of Americans participate in social media. I always sort of thought that because of my age bracket, I spend more time online than a “normal” person, but it is just second nature to my friends and I. Although I do remember a time without Internet, it’s a very faint, fuzzy memory that fades more and more with each mouse click. each American spends 60 whole hours a month online, meaning if you put that time all together, you’d be surfing the Web for one month straight. That’s a lot of online shopping!
The bottom line here is we’re all normal online. The Internet, e-commerce, social media have become so much a part of our lives that we can’t imagine life without them. Kinda like cell phones. Do you remember when they didn’t exist and we had to use pay phones and wait until people were home to call them? Now those were the Dark Ages.
