A day without the Net

A survey reveals that a large number of people choose not to use Internet at all as it takes their time from all the activities that are meaningful for them such as, reading, excercising, talking with people, etc. The interesting demographic detail reveals that these are middle class, educated and very successful people.

“The spectrum of naysayers also includes millions of well-off, educated, and younger professionals. Of the survey respondents who say they don’t use the Web, 24% make more than $50,000. Some 39% of the Netphobes attended or graduated college or have at least some associate degree training. And 29% are 44 years old or younger. “It’s not just everyone’s grandmother who is avoiding the Internet,” says John C. Barrett, director of research at Parks Associates.”
