What more the general population is spending more time online that off. According to a Burst Media survey 2005 60.9% of respondents were spending more time on the internet and according to Baruch College 93% of incoming freshmen checked their Facebook pages 17+ times a day.
With mobile phones becoming a necessity in the public’s mind and mobile phones becoming more like laptops with faster internet connections more and more young people will develop addictions to being connected and spending more time online.

- Think about your own Internet use habits. Have you changed your use of other media? Why or why not? How do your own habits fit the media use attitudes and patterns described in the chapter?
3 – Due to my Internet use habits my use of other media has changed drastically.
For one I watch TV close to never.
I visit libraries only to study (however this has to do with my lack of time to sit and read books for leisure or learning outside of school courses).
Newspapers are mainly a boredom reliever on the train as I get the news everyday online from CNN.com or AOL.com. Unlike the television the news I read is on demand. Like newspapers by subject of interest but able to be cross referenced and has the availability of back story.
My behaviors have changed in relation to television because there is nothing worse than being told a story is coming up and I have to sit through 30 minutes of the same commercial breaks to get to the story. Then when the story is on it is rushed through in 30 seconds and embellished for entertainment.
Thus news and entertainment on demand is the way to go for me. Gone are the days that we are forced to sit wasting time to get to what is relevant to us as individuals.
