The share of online adults who say the internet has been good for society is on the decline. While 76 percent in 2014 said the internet has been “mostly” good, by 2018, the proportion sharing that sentiment had dropped to 70 percent. Among older adults, those 65 and older, the shift was starkest, dropping from 78 percent in 2014 to 64 percent this year. Young people — ages 18 to 29 — were slightly more upbeat; 79 percent said the internet has been mostly good for society in 2014 compared to 74 percent in 2018. These results came from a phone survey of 2,002 adults, 18 years or older, run by the Pew Research Center during January 2018.
