Who's Using the Internet?

So, exactly who is using the Internet these days. I am going to explore this question over the next several days with different studies based on demographics like income, geography, race as well as a number of other factors.

Today's topic is Online Activities from 2000-20009. As you can see from the chart to the left (please click on chart to see full size view) activity online has gone up tremendously. Even back in 2000 there was still over 50% of the adult American population using the Internet in some capacity. Jump ahead to 2009 and that number increases to over 75%. The question you have to ask yourself as an attorney is; "Am I missing out on any potential clients because I don't have a presence online or at least one that shows when someone is searching for a lawyer like myself?" Can you really afford to not market your services to 75% of the adult population in the US?
