Are you guilty of wilfing your day away??
April 12, 2007
Wow, it seems we’re all wilfers these days… Apparently millions of us (those residing in the UK) are surfing the web aimlessly, losing an average of two full working days per month.
Some research, carried out by YouGov over 2,412 adults found that more than two thirds of the UK’s 33.7 million internet users are guilty of “wilfing” (What Was I Looking For?).
The survey revealed that almost a quarter of the country’s internet users spend 30 per cent or more of their internet time wilfing, both at work and at home.
Although men are much more likely to be tempted to wilf than women, shopping websites were found to be the biggest cause of wilfing, the survey found.
Worryingly, a third of male respondents admitted that wilfing had negatively affected their relationship with their partner, with almost one in five men being distracted by porn websites. Wilfing for porn… whatever next? 😉
