Internet An Integral Part Of Life For Young Adults
« on: Sep 22, 2011, 04:42 AM »
Internet and the social media have become a crucial part of life for many young adults. Fresh research shows that over half of students in 14 western countries said they would not be able to survive without the internet—and voices from Finland's under-30 crowd indicate that Finland is not exempt from the trend.

Most of the 2,800 adults under 30 surveyed by telecommunications company Cisco were Facebook users who logged on to the service daily. Finland was not one of the countries surveyed, but students at the University of Helsinki express similar sentiments.

"The value of the internet is constantly growing. It enables people to keep in contact and to find information," says student Emmi-Julia Tiitta.

The internet is increasingly part of the study process at the university.

"I experienced some days without internet. It was not easy. I couldn't find all the useful information and I was a little bit lost," says Oxana Kozar, an exchange student from Russia.
A social tool

The web has already become an integral part of young adults' lives, particularly as far as their social interactions are concerned.

"My best friend lives in Japan," says Emmi-Julia Tiitta. "So it's easiest to stay in touch through Skype."

According to Cisco research, some 70 percent of young adults have accepted their bosses and colleagues as Facebook friends. The majority is also following their colleagues on Twitter.
But not everyone feels the same way.

"I don't want my employer to be my Facebook friend," Milka Suomalainen opines. "I don't want them to know too much about me."

I can't imagine how life without Internet would be, in this part of the world (Suomi) that we (Emezico, Dewale & Sofamous70) live in.
