    I'm doing research into people's online habbits and was wondering what people thought was a reasonable cut off in terms of time spent online.

    Few people would argue that a few hours online is a bad thing, but is spending 6+ too much? Exclduing the time spent online at school and work of course.

    Also, if you think there is a certain amount, why?

    6+ in how long? One go? A day? A week? A month?

    I love the internet, I don't think you can spend too much time on it personally - unless, of course, it's intruding on more important things.

    There really can't be a definitive cut off line. People use the internet for many different things. I currently spend 6+ hours on the internet each day, but most of that time is spent looking and applying for jobs, so it's completely different to someone spending 6+ hours a day watching porn or faffing around on facebook.

    think when you go to the library a day before deadline , than i can spend even 16 hours working, i dont really do this but if i have to. and checking everyday's news takes so much time. nway sometimes there's nothing better to do then searching stuff online when the waether is horrible. (raining for a few days). its not bad to be online until we still can go out, and have social life. when we can differ time for the time spend outside and the time spend in front of the computer.
