Canadian Culture Consumption Online

I came across this interesting study by Statistics ┬áCanada on demographic differences in Internet usage, in relation to ‘consumption of culture’. It’s a very in-depth study, but well worth checking out for some intriguing observations, particularly around how older generations are closing the gap with younger Canadians when it comes to using the Internet.

Did You Know? The Top 12 Websites from 2001, 2007 and 2012

Using the InternetHow we use the web has definitely changed over the years, and sometimes (because things change so fast), it’s hard to think back to the state of the web eve a few years ago.

I came across an interesting article on the Social Talent website that talks about the Top 12 websites from just over a decade ago, five years ago, and then currently. has some great information about website popularity, but what I find interesting about this article is that it shows us more of a web timeline.

Can you guess what the top sites were in 2001? 2007? and today?

Test yourself. Then check your answers.
