Wondering What Most Use the Internet for? Well, It’s Not That Exciting — Survey of the Day

Why did the average American go online? For no particular reason (Ba-dum-bum).

Although this may not become the newest joke anytime soon, it’s actually a true statement. According to a new report from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, 53 percent of 18- to 29-year-old Americans go online just for fun or to waste time. With 2,260 participating adults, it turns out that 58 percent of all adults go online for the same reason.

10 Things We Wish We Could Opt Out of on Facebook

Facebook may have changed the way we communicate, keep up with long lost friends and pretend that we're doing actual work in the office, but it has come at a great cost to privacy. Now the federal government is forcing the social networking giant to ask all 800 million of their users if they wish to “opt out” of certain settings and features that might expose some of their personal information to the entire world.

Florida Woman Hit with Staggering $200,000 Cell Phone Bill

If you think your cell phone bill is high, you haven’t met Celina Aarons.

The Florida woman added a cell phone to her account for her mute and hearing-impaired brother, who didn’t know to turn off his data roaming when he was recently in Canada.
