Living in the 21st century means coping with all kinds of technological advances. And even though desk computers have evolved into laptops and tablets the Internet is fundamentally the same, full of information and functioning as a communication tool for people all around the world…except for those 38 million Americans who don’t use it.
That’s right – 38 million US citizens don’t use the Internet. Most of them have never ever used it and the others just don’t bother with it. According to an official count, around 15% of the American nation doesn’t own a computer and doesn’t browse the. A questionnaire shows that 21% of those who don’t use the Internet aren’t interested in it. The others don’t have time for it, don’t own a computer, can’t operate one or are worried about their privacy and about potential virtual threats.
Over the course of the past two decades the number of people who consider themselves too old to log on or who don’t know how to go about using the web has been constantly rising.
