Do you spend more time online than you used to?

I feel like since COVID-19 hit, a lot of people have ended up spending more time online than prior to it. I know for myself personally, my online time has increased but not much more than I had already been spending online. I would say I spend maybe 10% more time online. I have friends who hardly ever were online and now they are online more than me! Mostly using social apps and YouTube but still.

Maybe? I really can't say. I have always spent a lot of time online. I think this was down to me being in school. When I was in school, I adjusted to being on my laptop all the time and it stuck with me. Now I am a member on several forums (like this one) as well as Twitter, Reddit, and a few other big ones.

At times I do but this is mostly down to how my life has changed a bit since 2020. I spend more time at home, I work part-time from home, and I generally find entertainment online these days. I am working on getting away from this though by being more active again.

I am sure I do. I don't really pay attention but I know with work, my time sitting at my computer has increased quite a bit. I am hoping that when the season warms up more, I can get out the house and the office more again.

Yes. Unfortunately, during the harshest part of the lockdowns, I got used to being online to socialize and now I find myself relying on it still as I have not been able to see friends of mine in Vietnam or Canada. I used to travel to both places at least once a year each but it has been so long.

Most people do now. I think the virus outbreak actually encouraged a lot of older people to spend more time online as well. I know my mom hardly ever used her computer and now she is on it almost daily.

I spend too much time online these days and I am working on fixing it. I hate sitting idle for too long because it causes back trouble for me. Stupid COVID!
