College Students and Young Professionals consider the Internet to be as important as air, water, food and shelter

This according to a study conducted by Cisco. Teens and young adults will not be able to speak a sentence without reaching for their device to check online. The addiction is so much that teens and young adults are requested to go out get some fresh air and consider interacting with nature it will do you good. Some who were surveyed went on to say that the internet was so important to them that it ranked higher that dating, partying and cars. The internet has become so integral to their lives it is needed like air, water and food. They seem to think a day without the internet would rob them of life.

This means that SmartPhones and other mobile devices have become much more integral to their lives and they cannot think of life without one. In fact some of them surveyed also said it was more important that traveling. Yes, the internet can be used to get around and so how needs to travel. 

This generation has changed so much with the tablets and mobile phones that books and life outdoors seem to be neglected. Teens these days seem to think that if they are not connected online life will come to a standstill.
