A new study reveals that the Internet is a gigantic, sophisticated, inter-connected network utilized by many exclusively to ... waste time. On any given day, 53% of 18-to-29-year-olds log on to the web for the sole purpose of either having fun or passing the time, according to a report by the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project.

Nearly 60% of all adults said they use the Internet to kill time at least occasionally. The results correspond with age, so the younger the surfer, the more likely he or she is just dillydallying, reports AP. Only 12% of people over 65 say they went online the previous day for no particular reason.

Uh, who cares? lol the internet is what we make it. That's how it's evolved. There is no one use of it and no use is any more valid than any other.

I go online to study. I go online to talk to friends. I go online to play games.

Pretending like any one of those things has inherent value is silly.

Yeah, the internet is sometimes a waste of time, we must control ourselves. But it becomes fun when you study chemistry on youtube (I love the chemical reactions). :D

+1 , there is a lot of information,entertainment ,games and all kind of stuff on the internet so everyone can use it for different reasons... and that's why is great, you can use it to find what you like!.
And yes, most people will go online just to relax and the conclusion it's not very surprising as people will always love to do something else than work or learn:p
