Internet usage at home, 2011

The 2011 New Zealand report of the World Internet Project shows the common entertainment activities people used the internet at home for, and how popular they were on a daily, weekly and occasional basis. Surfing the web was the most popular daily activity and something most internet users did daily. Social networking was a reasonably popular daily and weekly activity. All other mass media activities – listening to music, watching videos, films and television and playing games – were an occasional activity.
