How people spend their time on the internet?

I’ve been googling for quite a bit and can’t find exactly the answers I want. I’m not talking about that “x% of their time in social network” or “x website receives y visits a day” crap. I’m talking about YOU, average internet user. What do YOU do on the internet (gaming included)? In what websites you spend your time? How much time do you spend on them, and for how long have you been? More importantly, how do you behave on them (trolling? lurking?)?

How do you describe your internet experience?

Lets see…

KYM, Cracked, Skype, Steam, KYM, Cracked, Facebook, KYM Cracked, Cracked, Cracked, Dr.McNinja…and then there’s all the important stuff. The commercial and information websites I use and whatnot. Cannot list them

I sink a lot of time into the internet. It’s my TV. I use it for everything. My job revolves around websites. I earn a living in dealing with them.

I’ve been posting on forums since 2001 and I’ve been browsing websites since 1995. With such a history, I consider myself a netizen and a member of net culture.

I’ve always just been myself online. I do not intentionally put on an act or purposely troll (although I troll a lot by complete accident). That said, I don’t exactly act the same online as I do IRL

>JustDub (dubbed anime)

Those are the main ones, in no particular order.

>TV Tropes tab always open, loaded to a random page to read if my computer is really slow
>Quick check on Equestria Daily
>KYM time, start with poni gallery, move on to the forums, then maybe check out other random galleries
>Play TF2
>Watch Yu-Gi-Oh! GX season 4
>KYM again
>Random videos on Youtube
>Play TF2/Watch Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
>Equestria Daily
Something like that.

>KYM, check my wall, check forums, make unusually long forum posts, look at new entries.
>Memebase, look at pictures.
>YouTube, check inbox, listen to music or watch other miscellaneous videos.
>Play Happy Wheels.
>Go on Wikipedia and look at random things.
>Go on IMSLP, a site with public domain sheet music, and look at pages of music (for some reason, I’m entertained by looking at music notes.)
>Go on Steam.
>Open the Candy Box game in a separate tab to collect candies while doing other things.
>Check email.
>Go on Gamespot to look at biased video game reviews.
>Go on Google Translate, type in random things and look at how to say them in other languages (for some reason, I am entertained by this. What’s wrong with me?)
>I’ll also go on Engrish.com, Urban Dictionary, Cleverbot (to speak German to people), Drawball, and Funnyjunk if I’m really bored.

>wake up at noon
>Equestria Daily
>tumblr
>memebase
>KYM
>derpibooru
>in that order, no exceptions, fox only, final destination
>play the same games I’ve been playing continuously for the past few years (i.e. Fallout 3 or TF2).
>talking on steam interspersed throughout
>fall asleep at 3 am
>repeat every day for the entirety of summer

My daily grind these days:

>kym
>blops 2
>various porn sites
>youtube for music and game grumps

Things I used to do:

Check in on facebook once and awhile when I had one and I was kind of a pain in the ass on a competitive pokemon forum, but I don’t like to post there anymore since they changed the format. I don’t even remember what the place was called now.

The first site I lurked regularly was the vg cats forum. It had these huge image threads where I learned most of what I know about the internet today. Unfortunately it got shut down a couple years ago.

Wow, you know, that’s pretty much the same as mine, except for JustDub and /pol/. I also on on some Roller Coaster Tycoon sites such as New Element, Memebase, Smogon, GameTrailers/ScrewAttack, Cinemassacre, Tumblr, and Pandora.

>various webcomics
>browsing trivia on Cracked, TVTropes, Wikipedia
>blogging

-KYM
-DeviantArt
-Tumblr
-Youtube
-Facebook
-Tickld
-Cracked
-Wikipedia

…I feel like I spend most of my time on the same sites as everyone else

I frequent pretty much only a few sites:

-Know Your Meme
-Facebook
-Soundcloud
-Youtube
-DeviantART

Yep, that’s it, but I use others occasionally. I go on the internet randomly around the day, every day.

In no particular order:

-Know Your Meme
-TVTropes
-Encyclopædia Dramatica
-4chan (mostly /vr/, /sci/ and /adv/)
-YouTube
-Various radio/streaming sites
-Steam
-A few blogs/webcomics

Throughout the course of a day, I’ll likely float through all of these at some point when I have time to get online.
