If it feels like your family and you are always online, it's with good reason. First thing in the morning, you're checking your email on your smartphone.
You might pick up a tablet and read the news, to see what's going on around the globe and in your neighborhood. Then, you spend the day at work or school on your laptop or desktop computer.
How do you end the night? Right, watching streaming TV shows or movies on your streaming media player.
So, it may not surprise you to find out that 87% of Americans use the Internet, according to Pew Research Center. What may surprise is the sheer number of people who say they're "almost constantly" online.
Among all people, 21% say they are almost constantly online (see chart next page). That number goes way up among young people. In fact, 36% of adults under 30 say they're constantly online, while 28% of people 30-49 say that.
Young people aren't the only ones constantly online. Pew found that African-Americans, well-educated people and people with high incomes are more likely than average to go online.
Plus, if you have a smartphone or tablet, you're more likely to go online at least once a day. Of smartphone owners, 87% say they go online at least once a day, compared to only 65% of people without a smartphone.
Still, a surprising number of rarely go online. Pew found that 13% of Americans go online less than one time a day, and 13% of respondents didn't report going online at all.
