According to research from the Pew Internet and American Life Project, more people than ever before in history are using the Web as a diversion. Here's more from the study:
Listening to music and watching online videos are among the most common of the activities we evaluated; roughly half of all online economic users have done each of these activities to relax. Approximately one-third of online economic users have played online games or chatted with friends (on a social networking site, listserv or other online group), while an additional 22% have taken their minds off of their economic or financial circumstances by creating or posting content online.
I definitely use the Web as a distraction, how about you? A few of my fun sites include Facebook, Oh No They Didn't, and the Huffington Post; plus, I love checking out the latest Web memes and free music sites.
