If you’re like most people, your Internet usage probably revolves around either going on Facebook or watching funny cat videos on YouTube. While both of these are great uses of the Internet, there are plenty of other ways to use the World Wide Web that you may not have thought of before – and which can be surprisingly helpful in your everyday life. Here are seven everyday uses for the Internet that you might not have considered before according to the latest facts and stats.

7 Everyday Uses for the Internet You May Not Have Thought Of


It’s likely that you use your phone on a daily basis. Whether it’s checking emails, playing games, or surfing social media sites on your lunch break. For people who have no need to have a desktop computer in their lives, this is pretty much all they use every day. And if you’re someone who gets easily bored with being sedentary for too long, smartphones are really an awesome invention that has given us so many more options and chances to be active.

Search Engine

It’s easy to take the internet for granted. After all, it’s become such a regular part of life that we rarely stop to think about what an incredible tool it is. In fact, there are quite a few things you may not have realised you can do with this amazing invention. For example, did you know that many companies offer 24-hour chat support? If you can’t find your answer on Google or YouTube, live chat agents may be able to point you in the right direction. They’ll often go so far as to walk you through how to fix a problem or install software if necessary. And if you want even more hands-on help, sites like Geek Squad and Get Satisfaction also offer customer service by phone.


If you find something new that sparks your interest and want to learn more about it, a Google search is great. We’re all constantly looking up new things, right? What’s great about this is that you don’t have to buy any books or articles in order to look them up online. The best part about this is how you can instantly find out where the information came from and get more information from other places like Amazon.


The internet has made it easier than ever to communicate with people all over the world, as long as you have an internet connection. And while Facebook and email were originally designed to allow people to communicate with each other, texting is also a popular form of communication via phones. In fact, most phone plans now include unlimited texting so that people can text friends or relatives without paying extra charges each month. Not to mention video chatting platforms like FaceTime.

Backup Drive
A backup drive or cloud storage is used to protect your data and ensure you have a backup in case anything happens to your original files. This provides you with peace of mind knowing that your data will not be lost. Even if your computer fails, a virus corrupts it, or there’s a power outage at home, you still have copies of all your information safe and sound somewhere else. Your data can also be transferred from one place to another quickly and easily which ensures no delays when switching devices.
