How much time do you spend on the internet?

Posted 26 April 2011 - 07:14 PM

Let's be honest, if you're reading this then you're on the internet. It has become one of the biggest part of our lives up to an extent where some of my geeky friends say there's no use for a computer without an internet connection. Of course I completely disagree with that statement but what are your opinions?

How many hours do you spend daily on a computer and how many of them are on the internet? and what do you generally do with it?

I work 50 hrs/week coding.
So I'm at my computer probably 60 hours a week.
All of that time the 'net is connected.
But I really only surf for specific things: Movie times, the news.
Otherwise the 'net is a background service for email, iTunes to download movies and TV subscriptions, Quicken to get my bank balance. So it's hard to call all of that 'on the net'.

Does an iPhone getting yellow pages listings or map directions really count as 'on the net' ?

I've never counted, but I'd say I spend at LEAST 8 hours a day on the computer.

So 8 * 7 = 56 hours per week.


56 * 52 = 2912 hours a year

So after 10 years of keeping this pace I'll have spent 29120 hours on the computer. Damn.

Maybe 2 hours a day surfing on the job, 4+ hours a night playing on-line games.
Gee, I really don't have a life other than the computer.

I'm w/ tlhIn`toq. I utilize the net nearly the entire day for different stuff, but I'm not on any specific website.

Of course I do spend a lot of time on some websites (like here?), I couldn't tell you how many hours I'm 'active' on the site (I could be logged in and on the site, but not even doing anything). Couldn't measure that really.

So I'll play it technical and say I'm on the internet 23 hours a day. The 1 left-over hour is my commute.

I'd say for most people they are on the internet for a big majority of the day. From home computers, work computers, web enabled phones, game consoles, etc.

EDIT: I'm probably on there at least 12 once I count accessing stuff from my phone in the field.

I'd say about 15 hours a day Monday - Friday give or take. About 8 hours on Saturdays and 5 hours on Sunday.

I usually spend at least 10 hours a day on the internet. From browsing DIC while at work because there's a lack of projects to work on at the moment, and gaming when I'm not working, my days are filled with internet connections.

Any time I'm at my computer I'll have my gmail, school mail, and DIC open, regardless of what I'm doing. I probably don't spend a whole lot of time with the browser as the active window though.

Come my days off I don't fire up my main computer or even sit at my desk. Wash the truck, go for a drive someplace new, beach walk, hike... things out in the world.

Don't be so hasty there sir, I worked full time hours throughout my degree to support my wife and child. I am out of the house at minimum 65 hour per week, and then when I am home I have to spend my time working on assignments. I've been in the real world for quite some time now, that's why I went back to school.
