Swedes and the Internet 2012
Daily use of the Internet has increased significantly among pupils at elementary and middle school. More than half the population of Sweden now has access to the Internet through their mobile phones and the use of tablet computers is starting to catch on. These are among the findings of .SE’s annual report, Swedes and the Internet, which was released in an english version today.
The New Wave
The South African Network Society Survey at Wits Journalism, University of Witwatersrand just released their report “The New Wave”. It is the first detailed report on Internet usage in a Sub Saharan African country.
Here are some key findings from the report:
Who, where, and why...
One in three (34%) adults now use the Internet. More people go online daily (22%) than read a newspaper everyday (17%).
Young black and school educated
Two out of three Internet users (66%) speak and African language at home, most of them have not been educated beyond school level and four out of ten live on less than R1,500 per month. Most (54%) leaners at school or college are now Internet users.
Mobiles and shared computers
Almost three quarters of Internet users use their phones to connect though only a minority are entirely dependent on mobiles to get online. Most users don't own computers but use PCs to get Internet access via Internet Cafes or other public or shared facilities.
Why people go online
The top reasons people say they first went online are:
- to get information
- for study
- for work or business
- to look for a job
Half of those who don't use the Internet say they don't know what it is. Only 4% of them own a computer. One in five adults say they can't easily read and write in English and almost all of these adults are not using the Internet.
