Almost half of all American adults who are online are using the Internet for religious purposes, according to a new study from Grey Matter Research (Phoenix, Arizona). That 44% of online Americans use the Internet in this manner means the Internet is used for religious purposes by 35% of all American adults.
Grey Matter Research surveyed a demographically representative sample of 1,011 American adults who use the Internet and explored their use of the online world for religious purposes. The research shows a variety of ways online Americans use the Internet for spiritual purposes.
