Advanced Canadians are increasingly spending their time on the Internet. What are they doing there? Let’s open this veil a little.
The average Canadian spends 6.2 hours a day online. It is not too much and not too less, more than 90 days they spend on the Internet per year. 27% of people rate their relationship with the Network as permanent. Canadians go online on multiple devices, but smartphones are the most popular. By the way, 64% of respondents have already said that they are trying to limit themselves in mobile surfing.
Sociological studies show that Canadians more often use the Internet for correspondence and communication, both business and personal (e-mail, instant messengers, chats, socialcasin networks). Facebook is extremely popular in Canada. Tik-Tok, Instagram and YouTube are a little behind it, but they are also leading. An incredible number of photos are uploaded daily by Canadians to Pinterest.
In second place is the entertainment function of the Internet. Canadians quite often download and watch movies or series, listen to their favorite music, try their luck in various live online casinos, and also look for entertainment information.
In third place is the search for information. Canadians devote a lot of time finding such necessary information as: weather forecast, concerts, theater or sports posters, flight schedules, exchange rates and much more. They are also interested in answers of any questions, and, of course, for learning.
The next most important is the search, viewing and reading of news. Also, Canadians spend a tenth of their time online on shopping websites and apps.
One of the latest trends is the growing popularity of podcasts. Now in Canada, a lot of people listen to podcasts.
Today, one in three Canadians on the Internet uses a voice interface on a smartphone every month. The growing popularity of voice technology is associated with the use of smart speakers.
Online gambling is always a top priority for Canadians. Due to the global pandemic, players around the world have switched to online betting and casinos. Canadians are no exception. But we must not forget that the shift began long before the pandemic, so at the time of its completion, it is unlikely that anything will change.
