Top 10 internet activities that make women happiest

Top 10 internet activities that make women happiest

We should be the happiest generation of women in history. We can choose whether to have children and when it is a right time for it. Women don’t need to marry to survive, and if marriage makes us miserable, we can divorce. Interesting and rewarding careers are on offer. We can reasonably expect men to take on a proportion of domestic responsibility. Us as a women have so many opportunities and open doors online, that we would have never imagined we had 10 years ago.  

In a recent study exploring the nature of internet happiness conducted by Carphone Warehouse, 2,002 UK adults were asked to rank the online activities that make them most happy.

The study shows that shopping and entertainment have the highest impact on our mood, with activities such as ‘Achieving the winning bid on eBay’ and ‘Discovering online discount codes’ ranking high in the top factors that influence our online happiness.

    • Achieving the winning bid on eBay (78%)
    • Discovering online discount codes for their favourite retailers, saving lots of money (76%)
    • Looking things up that interest them (76%)
    • Obsessing over a new music video on YouTube and replaying it 100 times over (75%).

For women, the top online activity that most impacts their happiness was “winning an eBay bid”, whilst men stated that “online dating” gave them the most pleasure. Women ranked online dating twentieth, behind ordering a takeaway and managing money online.

    This is super interesting, I’ll be sure to take the quiz. For me, it’s always the deals I find. I love Groupon, I use things like ebates/honey and travel sites that compare discounts. It always makes me happy when I get a good deal or I find a cash back site.

    I like this list. I love it when I can find an online discount for something that I need.
    Most of all I like that I can keep in touch with friends and family easily from whereever I am in the world. I love to search “things” that interest me online.

    Makes me the most happiest indeed. Finding online discounts on products and items that I need.

    I agree that this is the best time for women to be alive. Can’t stand when someone says something like “I wish I lived in the 60s. This is a nice list but I don’t think it’s any different than it would be for men. Would be interesting to see a comparison.

    Hi. Nice post. I must agree. This era produced the happiest women as we can actually stand on our own. Surprised though with #1 though 🙂 – Achieving the winning bid on eBay (80%).

    Nice read, love it.
