Global Internet Usage Trends

The UCLA World Internet Project released findings from a recent survey of more than a dozen countries.

Key findings include:

• Television viewing is lower among Internet users than non-users in all of the surveyed countries.

• Information on the Internet is viewed as generally reliable and accurate by a large percentage of users in most countries.

• Surprisingly high levels of online use among the poorest citizens in all of the survey countries — in spite of major divisions in Internet use between the richest and the poorest.

• Important effects on social, political, economic, and religious life in urban China, where the world’s largest population finds increased ability to reach out to others, in spite of government restrictions.
