    I surf the net for both fun and learning. I do my best to do a lot more learning than fun but I always end up having more fun at the end of the day since the entertainment I get from the Internet is unparalleled. The amount of things you can learn through the Internet are so vast that you might as well should just have fun along the way.

    It's interesting that nowadays, you can both learn and have fun at the same time while surfing the web. Gamification is everywhere and allows us to enjoy learning.

    I surf the internet for fun and to learn. Nowadays, surfing the internet is already a part of our lifestyle. It has become a need. I'm fascinated by how it can change our lives. With just a click, It can take you anywhere. It is very helpful since it is making our lives more convenient. I can't imagine life without internet.

    I surf the internet for both reasons. Why? The internet is filled with sites that would inform me while i laugh at a meme. this will help me in my learning process to multitask and focus at any given situation. Learning is the act of acquiring new or modifying and reinforcing existing knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, or preferences which may lead to a potential change in synthesizing information, depth of the knowledge, attitude or behavior relative to the type and range of experiences,according to Wikipedia. So that means that it gives us as people the changing perspective.

    Fun? what's not to love with Facbook, Twitter, Instagram and youtube. It helps me find my daily dose of laughter.

    I browse internet most of the time because I have two kids who needs answers for their assignments. Learning is fun, if you know how to deal with different websites, various opportunities are waiting there. It made our lives easier with the help of internet access. But for some, they are hook only for fun, gaming in short. Visiting websites provide the needs of many and as time goes, internet provider are planning to improve the speed and accessibility of it. All of the material that we use to know historically like encyclopedia, dictionary, map, books are visible to look at websites now. The good thing is, while searching for some ideas online, you can still open another tab for entertainment (fun). Again, too much fun nor learning with the use of internet access is not good, do not expose yourselves in visiting websites, it may cause some illness due to its radiation.

    Surfing the internet is a way of fun at the same time learning. Most of the time I browse the net for the purpose of learning. It's a great tool for me to know the latest features that the amazing world of internet can provide me specially that I'm planning to be a freelancer soon. Watching from YouTube, reading forums and blogs are my ways of learning. I find it easy and really helpful. Learning new recipe and house decorations as well. As a mother working OFW it's also a way for me to help my daughter with her homeworks regarding research. It's bridging our connections , fulfilling the feelings that just like I'm around her. Through navigating the web I'm learning what should I expect at her age, her developmental, social and physical changes. Learning by surfing the internet for me is a way of fun and relaxation. Amazing!

    The internet acts as the digital library to the modern age.Due to its vast broad, better and accurate information coverage. I like it for many personal references,and it satisfies most of the time.Be it fun or studies it seems everything is great there.Got lots of websites to entertain my favourite being YouTube,and has the dictionary which I always like searching at times if I need it.Anyway its a great tool for information for everyone to try as long as it exists.

    As a student and now a professional, the internet have provided one of the means in information gathering. You are not limited to learning what your course or work needs you to learn, but internet actually gives you a platform to explore different ideas that you are unaware of, interested or anything under the sun that may benefit you.

    Fun on the otherhand is a completely different side of the internet. While you do your work also via the internet, the fun part is your breather in the internet. You can play games and join social media for example.

    I do a lot of using internet at home, work, and everywhere. It is for fun and for learning also. Many ways you can enjoy the benefits of the internet for it makes life to the fullest. While you are bored, you can watch movies and other entertainment you like. You can play games through internet which can be a hobby of yours. Social media where you can share and post your daily activities. Search engine for your query and research. But most of all do all the ways you want to the internet, just don't abuse it for it is a time wasting activity sometimes.

    Using the internet for work purposes mostly, also for research and education.

    It is one of the most powerful tools we currently have as a society because of all the opportunities available.
    Being able to connect with people on the other side of the world within a click is something really amazing!
    Always be careful of scams guys.

    I surf the internet both for fun and to learn. I watch videos on youtube to relax and have fun. Most of the videos I watch makes me laugh. There are also some videos wherein I learn new things. I learn new applications on my laptop and smart phone that I never knew and at the same time learn new websites that can entertain me. The internet makes it fun for me to stay home instead of going out and spending money at malls. It also gives me a lot of information which I learn instantly instead of going to classes or paying an instructor to teach me.

    I used to surf the internet just for fun like checking facebook statuses of friends, watching youtube videos or just about anything that interests me. However, I started noticing friends selling online and earning online. So now, I am using internet to source out extra income. I now have my own online retail store though small scale. Also, I am watching videos on tutorials on many skills that I can develop to be a virtual assistant like web development and wordpress, adobe photoshop and the likes. And I'm also registering to some legit websites that pays like postloop, snuckles and more so that while I can have fun, I am also earning. Internet is just amazing, isn't it?

    Internet is everything. We can do everything under the sun, space, and even imaginary thru the internet. So why not maximize to surf using the internet? I surf the internet for fun and to learn of course. I spend the rest of my time surfing the internet thru Facebook. In the means of this, I am always updated to my friends and also I am also updated to the trends in the whole wide world at the same time learning to tutorial videos and latest news.

    Well for me I'm using internet to gain and acquire more knowledge by reading articles,discoveries,inventions and math tricks, I use it to make my homeworks when it is needed to make a research for it and streaming online news across the globe. I also use it to download online games and make new fun with my friends.

    I surf the net because I need information about a specific subject. We all know that internet gives us an access to everything. It is a powerful tool which can help us to learn. It is a library of millions of books which you can extract an information. I'm using the internet to learn and be more productive.
     
  17. Both of them, I surf the internet to search for knowledge and learn new things and educate myself.
    The internet today is a big help for me it gives me a lot of thing like if I want something to buy a gadget
    I have to search the google to gives me more information about that gadget and what is the advantages and disadvantage of that gadget and the reviews of the other owner gives me an idea!

    I learn a lot in internet like how to repair and troubleshooting electronics parts and whats the remedy, and the best parts is the Forum site you can exchange words to the people you never knew you can ask for help about the electronics troubleshooting.

    When boredom strike I watch in youtube listening music, watching movies and trailer funny videos
    and a lot of things I watch travel videos and learn the culture of the people lives in.


    Internet Rules!

    To learn. I always love to watch documentaries through History channel ever since when i was a child. And now that surfing the internet is part of our daily lives, I have all the opportunities to surf through internet and learn something new. Yes, i go to some sites to play, read mangas and go to some social networking sites but i always open at least one website in a different window just to have a daily dose of learning something awesome. I'm fond of watching documentaries about early civilizations and how they are able to innovate some things that inspired scientists of our modern times.I never missed a day without learning something new through internet.Knowledge is power!

    I am an engineer and always I look in the internet for the new ideas that come up nowadays. Also every time I want to know about something that are not connected to my field I surf in the internet to increase my knowledge. There are a lot of ideas in the internet that can add up to my knowledge to other field of expertise.

    A lot times I do browsing because I want to learn. Because I don't know too much when it comes to technology, I have a lot of websites I visited to watch , to read of what is happening in technology right now, updates and many more.

    Both, and that's why the Internet is one of the world's largest resource. You can use it for entertainment, to collaborate, build amazing projects, or just pass time with cute pictures of kittens.

    These days, I surf to learn. Back in the day, I went on the internet to learn about what the celebs were up to. That didn't do much for my soul lol

    Now, I go on to read about what is happening in the world, learn a new skill or even take some classes. It's amazing what we have at our disposal and it doesn't cost a thing.

    Like I thought, most people are for the 'Both Team'. I am too! Have to stick to my YouTube and gossip forums while learning from educational forums and videos of the like. That's just my life though. I shop at a store one day, learn about that store the next. When there is no balance. I can't unclog my mind. In fact, isn't it recommended that the average Joe teeter both ways if they are going engage in an activity for most of their life? Don't tell me that the Internet doesn't take up a majority of people's lives. :p

    Both, every one want to learn and yet we want fun. But some people using internet for fun because some of them don't have any friends or they have a problem they using internet to make them happy. And the other people they using internet to learn, they want to learn more using some website. They go to school to study, but not all teachers are taught about life. Some people using website for the tutorial mostly students they want to be advance. If you want to learn go to the website then that's it. It's too easy to learn now a days you can learn whenever you want.

    I do both, actually. I work at home so I have so much time on the internet and I squeeze in time to watch my favorite YouTube show, learn how to trade, finding more ways to earn online and so much more. I try and make the most out of my time and it should be productive, it should benefit me in the long run. There are many ''temptations'' on the internet i.e Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu but you have to break free from that and make your time online worthwhile.

    For fun and to learn. I usually surf just for fun but then it always ended up searcching things that i could learn. Most of the time i search about the stories of people that got succesful in terms of their businesses and after reading their story it got me inspired and courage to do things i thought i can't.

    Internet started during the last phase of 20th Century. Those who were born the time it started no longer have difficulties when it comes to Academic Studies. Internet contributed a lot to us most especially those who are privilege to have access on it anytime. Works that are impossible to accomplish within a day made easier by the use of Internet. Using it as means of learning is my top priority. On the other hand, it is also used as a way of doing something fun other than learning. I myself is fond of watching movies, playing games, reading online, visiting social network sites, etc., but that is if I have ample of time.
     
  30. Internet has made learning materials accessible more than ever. You can play a video on youtube and then suddenly you know how to do this or that. However there internet has also a bad side. Being unproductive for a whole day reading posts on your newsfeed isn't a very good thing. I would say that balancing the two is the answer for this problem.
