> How Americans Used the Internet
> After the Terror Attack
> WASHINGTON, DC--
> Americans, including Internet users, relied mostly on TV for their news
> and 
> the phone primarily for their communication needs in the days following
> the 
> terror attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the
> Pentagon. 
> But for many online Americans, the Internet played a useful supplemental
> 
> role as a communications tool  through their use of email and instant 
> messaging  and as a news source. In addition, many Internet users were
> 
> highly active in their communities in responding to the attacks.
> 
> The Pew Internet & American Life Project has released a report titled
> "How 
> Americans Used the Internet After the Terror Attack," detailing how 
> Americans did and did not use various forms of technology on Sept 11 and
> 
> 12, 2001.
> 
> In the two days after the terror attack, three quarters of all Americans
> 
> (74%) reached out to loved ones and friends by the phone or by the 
> Internet. Some 82% of Internet users used the phone or email to make 
> contact with people they care about in the first 48 hours after the
> attacks.
