Feeling lost without the internet? You're not alone. A recent study by Yahoo shows that in just a couple weeks without surfing the web peopole feel lost and bored.
"It allows a rare glimpse into the reasons consumers make the choices they do and how they are emotionally impacted," said a statement from Wenda Harris Millard, Yahoo's chief sales officer. "We can then help marketers apply these insights to reach their target audiences."
Respondents expressed frustration in completing tasks or shopping without the Internet. Socially, people found they were unable to maintain relationships with people outside their immediate circle of close friends, since many of them used e-mail or instant messaging programs instead of phones to keep in touch.
