How The Nation Uses the Internet

A new Pew study claims that search and e-mail are still the most popular activities online. I say "claim" because how can the study be complete when porn wasn't mentioned anywhere on the list?

A May 2011 Pew Internet survey finds that 92% of online adults use search engines to find information on the Web, including 59% who do so on a typical day. This places search at the top of the list of most popular online activities among U.S. adults. But it is not alone at the top. Among online adults, 92% use email, with 61% using it on an average day.
