In last week’s MakeUseOf poll we covered “Do you Backup your Files? How? What Do You Use To Backup Your Files? [Poll] What Do You Use To Backup Your Files? [Poll] Read More “. We had 606 people respond to the poll and found out that 11% of you do not backup at all! It seems the majority of you use a USB drive and then coming in a quick second is using a online service for backup.

We learned about a lot of nifty programs and services from your comments like Crash Plan from Tamar and lots of others from people just like you. We learned a lot of our users use Macs and most of them use Time Machine. Check out all the comments and opinions here What Do You Use To Backup Your Files? [Poll] What Do You Use To Backup Your Files? [Poll] Read More .

    What There's something outside of the Internet?

    Seriously being housebound I should say that my computer is switched on from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed and sometimes it even left on to process a job

    No less than 8 and no more than 16. I build websites in my spare time, and own a computer repair store, so needless to say ... I live online.

    I used to spend in excess of 16 or more hours a day online, mostly writing or selling on eBay. Like Saikat, I now look for outdoor diversions that give me more time with family and also more exercise. Not easy in the winter...but camping season is upon us!!

    I spend somewhere between 3-10 hours, depending the day and the mood of my girlfriend. :-)

    I thought if I clicked on 12 hours or more, a pop-up would tell me to get a life. Even though it's work related, I think some of us spend far too much time on the net. I know I have become unsocial as a result and so I am really trying to bring a lot of outdoorsiness to my day. Exercise is very important and so is social interaction.

    Anyone who states they spend > two hours daily is obviously lying, for some unknown reason.

    I have tried to cut down my online time in the past year. As editor of MakeUseOf, I obviously spend a LOT of time online but in the past, I was surfing the internet for about 16 hours a day - and my relationship with my girlfriend was seriously suffering as a result.

    I also realised in the past year that although I work online, I don't want to spend my whole life in cyberspace. There's more to life (believe it or not!)

      So I'm curious Mark which poll option did you choose?

    And what's the point of "Not at all" option? :D

    • Karl L. Gechlik
      March 8, 2010 at 8:51 am

      More of a farce than anything else and if we have an all day option we need to have Not at all. But it is funny because the person would need to be on the internet to answer the question.

    8 hours on average. That's about half of my awake time. IRL when someone asks the same question, I say 4 hours. :D

    Note: I do not have a computer based job. Heck, I don't have a job at all, I'm a student.

    My wife says I spend 36 hrs a day online. In MY defense I try not to spend more than 27.

    In the days of always-on Internet and multiple Internet capable devices this question doesn't have quite the same meaning as it might have a few years ago.

    I sit at my desk all day where I'm working on website development which presumably counts as "time spent on the internet" even though I may not actually be looking at something online (but then I do have email, IM and Twitter clients open so I guess that counts).

    And then before and after work we have a laptop in the kitchen which we frequently look at to read the news, do online quizzes, look stuff up, etc etc.

    For me, at least, it gets difficult to quantify the amount of time "spent online" in the day so I've gone for the > 6 hours option.

      Good points Chris. I wake up in the morning grab my phone and check email, weather and what not while getting ready to go. I then read my RSS feeds and Tweets on the way in on my phone on the train occasionally opening up a web page to view more information. Then I get into work and I am on the Internet for 8 hours sometimes on my desktop, servers and other connected devices traveling sometimes cuts down on a hour or two but my email is still being read to me while driving - so long story short I choose All Fricking Day (at least the majority of my waking hours)

        I spent nearly 12 hours on internet.
