Teenagers and Generation Y aren't the only ones who have the Internet down pat. Older users do many things online that younger folks just aren't into as much, according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project.

Generation Y enjoys the widespread stereotype as being the official Internet Generation, but it turns out those stinking kids don't own everything online. Generation Xers, Baby Boomers, and even "G.I." folks dominate their own niches when it comes to the online world, according to a new report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project.

Gen Y (also known as Millennials) make up the largest single group in the Internet-using population—30 percent—and more than half of the adult Internet population is between the ages of 18 and 44. However, Pew notes that surveys taken in 2006 and 2008 indicate that other groups are growing rapidly, with the largest increase in Internet use coming from the 70 to 75-year-old age group.
