From Ars Technica:

Americans are making aggressive use of the Internet during the latest economic downturn, doing things like searching for jobs and looking for information on how to save money. Some are even sharing their own ideas about the economy.

A large majority of Americans have used the Internet to seek advice or help during the current recession, according to a new report by the Pew Internet and American Life Project. Whether it's to find out what went wrong with the economy, look for new jobs, save money, sell personal items, or apply for loans, 69 percent of all Americans (88 percent of adult Internet users) now fall into the category of "online economic users," with Pew noting that these people are making sure to be extra-networked in order to get through the downturn.
