How important is the Internet to younger workers’ lives? Very.

Eye-opening findings from a re­­cent study of college students and young professionals:

  • One in three considers the Internet to be as important as air, water, food and shelter.
  • More than half could not live without the Internet and cite it as an “integral part” of their lives.
  • One in three would prioritize social media freedom, device flexibility and work mobility over salary in accepting a job offer.
  • Seven of 10 employees have “friended” their managers and co-workers on Facebook.
  • Two of five students have not bought a physical book (except textbooks) in two years.
  • Most respondents have a Facebook account and check it at least once a day.
  • Half would rather lose their wallet or purse than their smartphone or mobile device.
