Author(s): K Sudha Rani and Dr. K Anuradha
Internet services have become very popular in India, since its launch in the year 1995. As the access to internet at home, schools and higher education institutions has been increasing globally and at present in Indian context also, parents often worried about the impact of internet usage on well-being of adolescents. There are many myths and fads related to amount of time students are spending in internet usage and type of programmes they are watching especially during teen age. Therefore, there is a need to assess internet usage of college going students. Multi-stage stratified random sampling technique was used to select students and data was collected through a schedule. The results revealed that 77% of the sample students were using internet. Comparatively boys were using internet more than girls. Comparatively 18 years age groups students were spending more time on internet than 16 year and 17 years. Students studying professional colleges were using internet more than student who were studying in intermediate and Degree colleges.
