Some interesting figures coming from SodaHead as they take a look at the growing issue of Internet addiction. Indeed some interesting findings as figures and findings from recent surveys reveal that some 62% of people feel they are addicted although 39% feel they could quit if they want. Additionally, Internet addiction spans over all age groups but interesting to note that females seem to be slightly more addicted. What’s rather surprising though is that SodaHead has extrapolated their findings to other spaces and even indicate that the addiction can also signal future substance addictions.
From SodaHead: When the numbers are broken down by gender, 64% of women admitted to an Internet addiction, compared to 55% of men. Internet addiction was present in every age group, however the younger voters were more likely to be hooked (73% of those between 13-17 and 71% of those between 18-24). The numbers decreased for older respondents with only 39% of those between 55-65 admitting to the addiction.
