This paper presents the findings from a survey of 752 Australian University students and their families. The aim was to determine the extent to which individuals engaged in various Communication, Recreation, Information, Production and Transaction activities on the Internet. The results clearly identify the popularity of certain Communication and Information-seeking activities and the limited way many Production technologies have been embraced at this stage. Amongst other things, the data highlights Internet activities where age discrepancies exist and thus, identifies activities that may become second nature for future generations of University students, such as email and information-seeking have become to current generations.
