 Survey Underlines Young Britons’ Addiction to Internet

A new survey has found that more than 80 percent of Britons under 25 years of age admit to feeling 'lost' if they do not have access to the internet.

The opinion poll of 1,000 adults by the Science Museum showed how a generation that has grown up with the web has become dependent upon it.

According to the survey, three out of five people over the age of 25 said that they would feel 'lost' without the Internet, the Telegraph reports.

The survey found that one in three adults would choose the internet over television, with 60 per cent of people surveyed describing the internet as one of the most important inventions of the twentieth century.

The survey also found that over 40 per cent of people have taught themselves to cook using the web, while a third use it to learn how to fix something.
