How much time do you spend on the internet? What do you usually do?

 A recent study shows that a lot of people spend considerable time online.

Social media usage has doubled in the past couple of years. I  admittedly use social media a lot and I am online most of the time. The nature of my work requires me to be online and so on a daily basis, I am online for 9 or 10 hours a day.

                 Being online can have negative effects on our mental and physical well being and it can cause a sedentary lifestyle and depression. And so, I promised myself to have social media detox once in a while.

   How about you? How much time do you spend online?  Do you feel that staying online has more advantage or disadvantages?

@Alice I think this is the case for most people who work online. I also spend probably 16 hours online, this includes marketing and teaching.

I spend the majority of my time during my day online. I do this because I work from home. I also do not have a drivers license. So I watch Youtube videos or work on writing a novel.

I only check my social media whenever I ca- I don't really have a specific number of hours for such websites like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc...

In my case it's advantageous to use social media because that's where I would get my news and I'm always updated thanks to the internet

I try to spend no more time than necessary online. Between teaching, talking with students and doing emails and of course, the occasional email suffices for me. I do however have an issue with the net and social media as it is tearing society apart. You can's go to restaurants or visit a friend's house without someone at the table socializing in some fashion. It's a pandemic, I think!
