What people are doing online right now

The internet takes up a huge part of our daily lives. Many of us have integrated real-world activities into our online and mobile experience to the point that everyday items such as checks, calendars, newspapers, and letters have become completely unused by a good chunk of western society.

The infographic by Flowtown below breaks down common activities of people surfing the web. Here, we highlight some of the most interesting data:

  • 61% of adult internet users bank online
  • 21% download podcasts
  • 78% research products online while 71% buy them online
  • Despite their popularity, only 13% use Twitter and 14% work on a blog or personal journal

What does this really say about us? Not much that we didn’t already know with nearly 80% of American adults online, but that doesn’t take away from the heavy users who are online more of their waking lives than they’re offline.
