Choosing Against The Internet

Being connected to the internet isn’t just a matter of being able to afford it, says a new study. “A total of 80 million American adults – 42 percent of the adult population – say they don’t use the Internet, the study found. But 20 percent of them have Internet access in the next room and choose not to go online. Or, some of them get family members to go online for them. ‘Many of the people whom we talked to define themselves as people who don’t use technology. They view themselves as high-touch versus high-tech.”
