You would be forgiven for thinking people in their late teens and early twenties spend more time on adult websites than anything else. However, that simply isn’t the case according to a recent survey. Today, we’re going to let you know a little more about the online trends to which young people prescribe today. The website categories below were deemed to be most popular with people who sit in that age group. That’s not to say older and younger people don’t use them too. It’s just the highest demographic comes from people between the ages of twenty and thirty.

 

  • Social media websites

Social media has taken the world by storm over the last decade. Almost one-fifth of the world’s population now has an active Facebook account. So, it should come as no surprise that people in their twenties use those websites more often than any other. Not only are they a fantastic place to get the most recent news, but they also offer a means of free communication. Twitter comes in at a close second after Facebook, and Instagram gets the third place medal.

 

  • Gaming websites

A significant amount of people in their twenties use gaming websites on a weekly basis. While World of Warcraft might have become less popular over the last few years, it still has thousands of players every single day. There are also thousands of other online games that people like to play.

 

  • Dating websites

Yes, that’s right folks. Most people in their twenties are looking for love, and so they use modern technology to aid their search. There are so many different dating websites from which they can choose, and some of them even offer a free service. The stigma attached to meeting someone online has disappeared these days. Also, a significant percentage of all marriages last year started from an internet relationship.

 

  • Retail websites

There is a good reason for the decline of high street stores, and it is that most people do their shopping online in the modern world. The advantages of using sites like Amazon and eBay to purchase your items are endless. Not only do you have a much wider selection, but you will also save a lot of money too. That is why a lot of people in their twenties access those sites.

 

  • Casino websites

The attraction of huge initial bonuses and free aristocrat pokies ensures that many people in their twenties use casino websites for fun. Thankfully, most of them are smart enough to know their limits, and so gambling online is not such a big issue. There are currently around 4,000 different casino websites from which they can choose, and most of them run lucrative introductory offers. That means that people tend to move around and use different sites every couple of months.

Having learned a little more about some of the most popular websites, it should become apparent that young people spend a lot of time using the internet. Will the most popular sites change moving forward? Almost certainly. Social media wouldn’t have even made it onto the list a decade ago, and today it has achieved the top spot. The world is changing faster than ever before, and our online experiences will evolve in the same manner.
