The World Internet Project, led by the USC Annenberg School of Communication, has released its 2009 report. The project has been instrumental in tracking the usage and attitudes about the Internet in several countries.
Of particular interest this year is the ongoing issue of online credibility and how that compares with other media. In this year's report, a majority still feel that only about half of the information they consume online is credible. Having said that, people said the Internet is an important source of information, in particular about health. But online purchasing isn't prevalent yet.
