Survey Finds Many Self-Identify As Addicted To The Internet

An online, non-scientific survey from SodaHead found that 61 percent of 602 respondents feel they are addicted to the internet. That may not be so surprising, given the survey was conducted online. More women than men felt they were addicted with 64 percent versus 55 percent. Teenagers reported themselves the biggest addicts with 73 percent. Older respondents, those aged between 45 and 54, reported 40 hours of browsing per week, but said they were not addicted, while teens reported 22.3 hours online. How could American’s internet addiction impact productivity in the workplace?  What can employers do keep workers focused on their responsibilities?
