Not Using The Internet By Choice

from the yes,-they-exist dept

It seems there are a large number of people in the US who choose not to use the internet. There seem to be a variety of reasons for this. Some people are afraid or confused by it. Some think it’s too expensive. Many, however, just don’t think they’re missing anything. I also found it interesting to see that 54% of non-users think the internet is dangerous. Actually, that statistic scares me a little. What makes these non-users so afraid of the internet? Also, of interest is the 13% of non-users who used to use the internet, but have since given it up.
