Your Task. Examine Figure 3.9 and relate the percentage of Internet use to the country. For example, in China 38.4 percent of the people have Internet access up from 22.4 percent two years earlier. Consider these or similar questions: Is this figure likely to increase in the future? How can you explain the low Internet penetration for Asia as a whole? Why do you think North European nations are so Internet friendly? Which regions have experienced the strongest growth in two years? What conclusions can you draw about Internet use worldwide? Discuss your observations in small groups or in class. Your instructor may ask you to submit your conclusions in writing. You may also be asked to conduct more research for a short report. Statistics about Internet use worldwide abound, along with more recent numbers showing global social media use.
