[via deinde

A recent survey by Burst Media of more than 1,800 13 to 17 year olds revealed most of these teenagers cannot live without the internet.Chart1

Among teens who go online from home, friends' homes, libraries and other locations outside of school, more than one-third (37.4%) say they spend three or more hours per day on the Internet. Teen males are more likely than teen females to say they spend three or more hours per day on the Internet – 39.9% versus 34.7%. Additionally, nearly one-in-five (17.9%) say they spend between two and three hours online; one-quarter (25.1%) say they spend one to two hours online; and 19.6% say they spend less than one hour per day online outside of school.

Respondents were asked what offline activities they commonly conduct when online – homework is cited by about half (48.9%). Interestingly, teen females are significantly more likely than teen males to say they are "hitting the books" while online – 54.1% versus 44.0%. Other offline activities commonly conducted while online include; watching television shows or movies (33.8 %), listening to the radio (21.4 %), watching music videos on television (21.2 %), sending text messages by cell phone (20.1 %), talking on a cell phone (19.0 %), talking on a land line phone (16.3%), and watching sports on television (11.8 %).
